Educational Resources

Resources to Support Family Caregivers​

Through the years, AJN has published several special supplements, article series, and videos to help nurses teach and support family caregivers. See this Resouces to Support Family Caregivers​ for content to manage the complex care regimens of their family members.

Supporting Family Caregivers: No Longer Home Alone, a series of articles and accompanying videos published in collaboration with the AARP Public Policy Institute, aims to help nurses provide caregivers with the tools needed to manage a family member's care.

Textbooks can’t keep students abreast of new developments and issues. Adopt AJN as part of your curriculum!

Teaching with AJN​ is a school adoption program to help faculty provide students with cutting edge, evidence-based information, create awareness of the emerging and controversial issues confronting nursing and health care, current issues affecting nursing, and foster an ethic of lifelong learning crucial to professionals. Teaching with AJN will include subscription discounts, an on-site writing workshop, and more. Go here for details.

How to Try This Series​

AJN published a series of articles and videos on evidence-based geriatric assessment tools and best practices in partnership with the New York University College of Nursing’s Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing with partial support by a grant from the John A. Hartford Foundation. Called “How to Try This,” the series translates materials from the Hartford Institute’s “Try This series” into free, web-based resources for educators, students, and clinicians.
