The emerging field of palliative care in the United States must respond to the health care needs of persons living and dying from advanced illness. The literature suggests that professional nursing education in palliative care is limited, inconsistent, and sometimes neglected. In response to these identified needs, the Michigan (MI) Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) Palliative Care Project was designed to integrate palliative education into existing graduate nursing curricula and to provide continuing education for postgraduate nurses.
