Research Title: Jordanian nursing staff competence evaluation for elderly care
Supervisors: Prof Allan Kellehear and Dr Melissa Owens
For the last six years, geriatric nursing care has continued to drive my interest for professional development as I worked as a registered nurse in a critical unit
at a private hospital in Amman. This work experience was extremely valuable. It opened my eyes to the importance of addressing geriatric patient care within
the context of family. It was a personal gain to be able to help families going through difficult time while caring for their loved ones.
My passion is to make difference in the lives of older adults. This study would allow me to gain more knowledge and experience in order to achieve my future
goals of contributing to the enhancement of elderly care in my country.
