Enhancing Gerontological Nursing Education

The Minnesota Hartford Center of Gerontological Nursing Excellence (MnHCGNE) works to address the critical need for nurses with expertise in caring for older adults by preparing outstanding nursing faculty to teach geriatric nursing in associate and higher degree programs in the Upper Midwest and tribal colleges. We do so through four initiatives:

The Hartford Geriatric Nursing Education Scholars Program offers financial support to PhD and DNP students who intend to focus their graduate studies on the nursing care of older adults.

The FLAG Program is an innovative faculty development program  for new and existing faculty to enhance their expertise in teaching geriatric nursing.

The Midwest Geriatric Nursing Education Alliance links associate degree and higher nursing schools with each other to promote excellence in geriatric nursing education.

These programs are made possible by a grant from the John A. Hartford Foundation's Building Academic Geriatric Nursing Capacity (BAGNC) program, celebrating a decade of achievement.
