Enhancing Gerontology in Senior-level Undergraduate Courses
GNEC is a national initiative of AACN to enhance geriatric content in senior-level undergraduate nursing courses. Administered by AACN in collaboration with the Hartford Institute, the initiative educates faculty at a majority of the baccalaureate schools of nursing in the fundamentals of geriatric nursing and the use of geriatric curriculum resources.

New GNEC Web-based Modules

New evidence-based modules have been created to help BSN faculty integrate content on these topics in care of older adults into both didactic and clinical courses. Authored by nurse experts, and in a Power Point format previously used to prepare content for the GNEC project, each of the 3 modules provide background and extensive teaching strategies for integrating the content into existing class presentations and assignments (written and clinical).

Geriatric Nursing Education Consortium (GNEC) Webinar Series and Faculty Resources

GNEC is a national initiative of AACN with generous funding from the John A. Hartford Foundation to enhance geriatric content in senior-level undergraduate nursing courses.  To successfully incorporate content into the curriculum, faculty must be informed and have accessible evidence-based geriatric care information, access to curricular change resources, and support from professional colleagues. 

AACN, in collaboration with the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing, New York University College of Nursing, recently hosted a webinar series to introduce faculty to the GNEC project and showcase available geriatric resources, innovative teaching strategies, and methods for infusing the content into the didactic and clinical curriculum components.  The recorded webinars can be viewed at http://www.aacn.nche.edu/geriatric-nursing/gnec-webinar-series
