The NLN Hearst Foundation’s Excellence in Geriatric Education Awards

April 2014

As part of its intensive focus on teaching how to provide the best care for older adults, the National League for Nursing (NLN) is now accepting applications for Excellence in Geriatric Education. This award is designed to recognize schools of nursing that demonstrate exceptional instruction and innovation in this key area of nursing education. 

Applications are due by May 1, 2014, and will be judged by a national review committee of experts in geriatric education. Awards will be presented at the NLN Education Summit 2014 in Phoenix, Ariz., in September. Additionally, the winning schools will present their innovative approaches to teaching geriatrics at the Advanced Care Excellence for Seniors (ACES) pre-Summit workshop.
