Dare County — On March 5, College of The Albemarle (COA) Nurse Aide students at the Roanoke Island Campus had the opportunity to hear a world-renowned expert on dementia care speak on the Outer Banks.
Teepa Snow is the founder of Positive Approach to Care (PAC), a company that provides dementia care training, services and products. Snow travels around the country and beyond, providing insight on techniques to help better care for individuals with dementia.
The Nurse Aide students were able to attend the event at no cost thanks to collaboration with the Eastern Area Health Education Center (AHEC). Judith Flagge, RN, part-time instructor for the Nurse Aide I course, shared, “Our students had a wonderful experience and were enlightened by the opportunity to hear Teepa Snow speak. We always try to incorporate dementia care into our Nurse Aide I curriculum, but this surpassed our expectations and really worked well for our students.”
