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

2000 award recognizes four nursing programs as educational models of excellence

WASHINGTON, D.C., November 14, 2000 Offering a curriculum that focuses on health as well as illness, plus emphasizes the development of the older adult, the Pennsylvania State University School of Nursing is the first-place winner of the 2000 Award for Exceptional Baccalaureate Curriculum in Gerontologic Nursing, presented by the John A. Hartford Foundation Institute for Geriatric Nursing at New York University (Hartford Institute) in collaboration with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).

The awards, established by the Hartford Institute and presented in ceremonies October 22 at AACN's fall semiannual meeting in Washington, D.C., nationally recognize schools and programs of nursing that exhibit exceptional, substantive, and innovative baccalaureate curricula in gerontological nursing education.

As older adults comprise a rapidly expanding segment of the U.S. population, geriatric care skills increasingly will become part of every nurse's repertoire," says AACN President Carolyn Williams, PhD, RN, FAAN. "These awards honor models of excellence that encourage the highest standards of gerontological nursing education, and AACN is extremely pleased to continue this collaborative effort with the Hartford Institute in coordinating and developing guidelines for this important initiative.

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, says Mathy Mezey, EdD, RN, FAAN, professor of nursing education and director of the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing. We are also delighted to partner with AACN in this effort.

As first-place winner, the Pennsylvania State University School of Nursing received an award of $1,000. A second-place award of $500 was presented to the University of Nebraska Medic
