Fewer than one out of three baccalaureate-level nursing programs have a required course in geriatrics. The Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing (HIGN) aggressively strives to assure that geriatrics is robustly reflected in nursing education. To this end, the Hartford Institute has developed competencies and evidence-based materials to help faculty embed care of older adults in nursing curricula, thereby driving excellence in practice now and in the future.
The Hartford Institute is a groundbreaking leader in the creation and promotion of geriatric educational concepts, resources and innovations, including
• Educational frameworks and tools emphasizing geriatric excellence
• Faculty education modules
• Continuing education courses
“With baby boomers reaching 65-years-of-age, the time is ‘now’ to assure that every nursing student has the competency to care for older adults. The Hartford Institute materials are an important resource to help faculty achieve this goal.”
