Gerontological Education Toolkit
Advancing Care Excellence for Seniors
ACES Development & History
ACES (Advancing Care Excellence for Seniors) is a grant-funded initiative to foster gerontological nursing education for pre-licensure nursing programs. The ACES website is the go-to place for gerontological resources for faculty and students, classroom-ready teaching tools and strategies, and information about upcoming faculty development events related to integration of care of older adults into nursing program curricula.
The three-year ACES grant, funded by the John A. Hartford Foundation, is a collaborative effort between the National League for Nursing and Community College of Philadelphia (CCP). Laerdal Medical Corporation is providing support to develop simulations and unfolding case studies related to care of older adults. ACES also received funding from the Independence Foundation of Philadelphia, CCP's local funding partner. The Hearst Foundations have provided funding to disseminate ACES across the academic spectrum through workshops that will reach more than 20 states between 2011 and 2014. Additionally, in 2013 the MetLife Foundation provided the NLN with funds to develop faculty resources, including unfolding cases, for teaching care of Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers.
