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.
