Gerontology - Gero Hartford: Home


The National Hartford Center of Gerontological Nursing Excellence (NHCGNE) is a collaboration of national and international schools and institutions committed to a mission of enhancing the capacity and competency of nurses to provide quality care for older adults. The mission is accomplished through advancing gerontological nursing science, providing faculty development, facilitating adoption of best practices, fostering leadership and designing and shaping policy. The University of Arizona College of Nursing joined the collaborative in 2016, and formed its Gerontological Interest Group (GIG). 

NHGCNE works to support students and faculty in their practice, research and quality improvement interventions. Faculty with a broad range of expertise are available to mentor and guide. Local meetings (Wildcat Hartford Center Gerontological Interest Group) are open and held on a regular basis (Thursday mornings) at the College of Nursing and live streamed through Zoom for distant participants. Topics covered range from policy and gerontological practice to innovative research. Students and other interested parties are welcome to attend and participate.
