Hartford Institute/AACN award honors nursing schools for innovative gerontology,,education

The John A. Hartford Foundation Institute for Geriatric Nursing at New York University (Hartford Institute) partnered with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) to bestow the second annual Award for Exceptional Curriculum in Gerontologic Nursing. This award was presented recently in ceremonies at AACN's fall semi-annual meeting in Washington, D.C. to six nursing schools that exhibited exceptional, substantive and innovative baccalaureate curricula in gerontological nursing education.

"All nurses in the course of their careers take care of older adults," says Mathy Mezey, EdD, RN, FAAN, professor of nursing education and director of the Hartford Institute at New York University. "Consequently, every entry-level professional nurse must be competent in providing optimal nursing care to elders. We are delighted to be able to foster and showcase nursing schools in the forefront of meeting their responsibilities to adequately prepare students through outstanding geriatric curricula. We are also delighted to partner with AACN in this effort."

"These awards honor models of excellence that encourage the highest standards for preparing nurses to deliver quality care to the fastest growing segment of the U.S. populations," says AACN President Andrea R. Lindell, DNSc, RN. "Geriatric care skills will increasingly become part of every nurse's repertoire. AACN is proud to have played a key role in coordinating and developing guidelines for this important initiative to spotlight education programs that are breaking vitally important new ground."

The first place winner is the University of Akron, College of Nursing. Runners-up include the University of Maryland, School of Nursing and the University of North Carolina Greensboro, School of Nursing. Honorable mentions went to the San Diego State University, College of Nursing, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, College of Nursing and the University of Penns
