Dr. Kristin Wicking (pictured to Jones’ right), who is the Director of Education and the Course Coordinator for SNMN’s Postgraduate Certificate / Diploma / Master’s courses with a major in Care of the Older Adult, was invited to participate; and was accompanied by Ms Adele Baldwin (pictured to Wicking’s right), who spearheads undergraduate education for nursing students regarding care of the Older Adult.
