Nursing and social work students learning to work together at UT Arlington
Date:9/21/2012

The University of Texas at Arlington's College of Nursing and School of Social Work will use nearly $900,000 during the next three years to fund research to improve connections between nurses and social workers before they meet in the health care workplace.

They'll work together in small groups for the next year to come up with care plans for selected case studies. Professors will teach the students about each profession's roles and responsibilities, distinct professional values, as well as identifying barriers to teamwork between social workers and nurses in the workplace.

"There aren't many models for how to teach nurses and social workers to work collaboratively. Yet, great working relationships between nurses and social workers translates into patients receiving
