The NLN Hearst Foundations Excellence in Geriatric Education Awards
As part of an intensive focus on teaching care of older adults, the NLN will recognize schools of nursing that demonstrate exceptional instruction and innovation in this key area of nursing education. The award for Excellence in Geriatric Education is a multi-year competitive awards program; a dozen schools of nursing will be selected for this prestigious honor between 2012 and 2015.
Faculty from awardee schools will present their innovative approaches to teaching geriatrics at an NLN Education Summit pre-Summit ACES workshop session.
Schools receive a plaque, one complimentary registration to the
NLN Education Summit, and partial support for Summit travel costs.
