North Andover resident co-authors book on seniors and mental health - Lawrence Eagle Tribune, December 19, 2010

Karen Devereaux Melillo, North Andover resident and UMass Lowell chair of nursing, has co-authored a new, one-of a kind book that combines the study of aging with that of psychiatric mental health.

"Geropsychiatric and Mental Health Nursing, Second Edition" addresses the knowledge and skills necessary in the assessment and nursing care of older adults experiencing common late life mental health and psychiatric problems. The text features experts in gerontological nursing and geropsychiatric fields and provides essential information for advanced practice and professional nurses in addition to graduate and undergraduate nursing students.

The UMass Lowell Graduate Program in Nursing is pleased to announce a new 12-credit online certificate: Sleep & Sleep Disorders in Health and Disease.  More information can be found on the Massachusetts Coalition of Nurse Practitioners Coalition newsletter (pdf) as well as on the Massachusetts Coalition of Nurse Practitioners website.
