YSN's Milone-Nuzzo Recognized as an Outstanding Leader in Home Health Care
Yale School of Nursing Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Paula Milone-Nuzzo was recently named a Fellow of Hospice and Home Care by Home Care University, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing research, education and credentialing for home care and hospice.
Milone-Nuzzo has provided leadership in home care for the past 20 years. At Yale, she began the nation’s first home care master’s program and devised a curriculum that was the first to layer an understanding of home care over a full clinical specialization such as nurse practitioner.
Milone-Nuzzo is the author of the Manual of Home Care Nursing Orientation, which received the American Journal of Nursing Book of the Year Award in 1996. She serves as board president of the Regional Visiting Nurses Association and is a fellow of the American Academy of Nursing. Through her work with the Yale-China Association, Milone-Nuzzo has helped colleagues in the People’s Republic of China to make use of home care to further their public health agenda.
As a fellow, Milone-Nuzzo will advise Home Care University on health care issues, guide special projects and research and support education initiatives in the field.
Home Care University is a non-profit affiliate of the National Association for Home Care (NAHC). Founded in 1982, NAHC is the largest trade association serving the nation’s home care agencies, hospices, and home care aide organizations that provide health and supportive services to more than seven million patients receiving care in their homes due to acute, long-term, or terminal health conditions.
