- ELNEC Train-the-Trainer Courses | Launched in February 2000, the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC) provides nurse educators with essential training in end-of-life/ palliative care and provides participants with the knowledge and resources to share this with other nursing colleagues. The ELNEC-Core Curriculum training program was originally funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to improve end-of-life care for patients through the preparation of nurse educators in clinical and academic environments. Over the past eight years, additional funding has been provided by the National Cancer Institute, Open Society Institute, Aetna, Archstone, Department of Veterans Affairs, Oncology Nursing, and California HealthCare Foundation. ELNEC is administered through a partnership between the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), in Washington, DC and the City of Hope, in Duarte, CA.
