Showcasing Curriculum Grant Innovations

AACN administers The John A. Hartford Foundation funded Enhancing Geriatric Nursing Education for Baccalaureate and Advanced Practice Nursing Programs, an initiative that supports gerontology curriculum development and new clinical experiences in 30 selected baccalaureate and graduate nursing programs. With their funding, grant recipients instituted highly impressive curricular innovations.

During the next several months, AACN will showcase these innovations individually. We encourage nursing faculty and administrators to use these articles as a resource to replicate, develop, and/or expand upon the awardees' fine work. In this way, we may create a continuously evolving curriculum model that advances the highest quality of nursing care for older Americans.
