The Division of Youth and Family Services have state and federal grants to pay tuition for Social Work students who will work in a DYFS facility for one year after they graduate. The state needs Social Workers for these positions, as soon as possible, to fill the shortage.
Hi all. I am an 18 year old college sophomore. Well, I turn 19 on August 15th which is 3 days before classes start. Anyhow, I am a social work major, currently pre-social work status, and I am looking for any scholarships that you all know of. I attend a PWI but can’t seem to find minority scholarships. My GPA isn’t that great, due to stress and a lack of being responsible due to depression my freshman year. I am looking for anything you guys may have. Contact info or anything. I really need help paying for school. (Out-of-state tuition is expensive!)Thank You!!
Though, above mentioned titles are not the ultimate choices, they can still help you find the more relevant titles so you can start working on your academic project as soon as possible. You might be thinking why so much emphasis is given just to a title. Well, you are right to think about it but it is quite important to be very clear about it because a title is not just a piece of few lines but it will tell everything about each and every important idea or point of view you are going to discuss in your paper.
I, my name is Chedene. I am 20 years of age and I have aspiring dreams of becoming A social worker one day, not just for myself fulfillment, but because I want to make a difference in my community. I dream of becoming someones hero one day. I am the first to attend college from my family. I want to make me and the people that contribute to my success proud of me. Thanks for your favorable response.
Due to widespread interest in creating more explicit regulatory attention to quality of life and quality of care in the nursing home, CMS provided support to social work researcher Rosalie Kane and her research team to undertake a five-year study to 1) develop and test measures and indicators of quality of life (QOL) for nursing home residents, and 2) to study how the physical environment, including private rooms, affected resident QOL. () Eleven relevant domains at both the resident and facility level for which outcomes can be specified and potentially measured were identified including:
Social workers can be the key to promoting improvement in quality of life domains by building on their person-in-environment perspective; implementing environmental interventions; using knowledge of group processes to build resident, staff, and family involvement; addressing end-of-life and discharge planning needs with a resident-centered context, and being involved in continuous quality improvement efforts.

Social workers have taken lead roles in the international movement to promote resident-centered nursing home care. The Pioneer Network () is a lead resource in promoting culture change and principles. Culture change in long-term care is an ongoing transformation based on that restores control to elders and those who work closest with them. This transformation i ncludes changing core values, choices about the organization of time and space, relationships, language, rules, objects used in everyday life, rituals, contact with nature, and resource allocation . Reports on research for residents and facilities that have embraced the culture change principles, such as the Eden Alternative can be found at:
Enhancing Social Work Contributions to Psychosocial Care: In December 2004, the Institute for the Advancement of Social Work Research (IASWR), in collaboration with University of Maryland School of Social Work and the Institute for Geriatric Social Work at Boston University, convened a meeting, Evaluating Social Work Services In Nursing Homes: Toward Quality Psychosocial Care And Its Measurement , bringing together researchers, practitioners, and representatives of federal agencies to:
A Briefing Book, providing important background information (including NASW Standards for Long Term Care and NASW Clinical Indicators for Psychosocial Care in Nursing Homes) and key research findings; a Report to the Profession and Blueprint for Action that includes summaries of research presented at the symposium on social work roles and functions, mental health needs of nursing home residents, quality of life, and the nursing home culture change movement also imparts important practice, policy, and research recommendations;, and an Issue Brief that provides a short summary and highlights key practice and research recommendations can be found at:
This process improves your subject expertise, is a good preparation for further study and research at postgraduate level, and requires you to work independently and methodically in a variety of intellectually demanding contexts.
For all these reasons, the dissertation can be seen as the culmination of your undergraduate studies. Here you not only demonstrate the intellectual, study, research and presentation skills that you have developed throughout your degree course, but also create something which is uniquely your own.
This conference confirmed the need for a comprehensive approach to monitoring and measuring psychosocial care, specifically care provided by social workers, and quality of life in nursing homes. The highlights of the action agenda for improving the monitoring and measuring of social work services provides opportunities for individual practitioners, facilities, corporate providers, and university-based researchers to undertake studies that use currently available data sources (e.g., CMS OSCAR data) and create new collaborations that connect quality of life and quality of care to ensure the maximum health and well-being of nursing home residents.
