GNEC Gerontological Nursing Education Podcasts

Care of older adults is, and will continue to be, the "core business" of healthcare institutions. These podcasts have been developed by Melissa Aselage in collaboration between UNCW School of Nursing, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing, and New York University College of Nursing. The Geriatric Nursing Education Consortium (GNEC) are modules developed for baccalaureate nursing students in an effort to prepare nurses to meet the complex and challenging needs of this population. The GNEC modules are based on the AACN’s Older Adults: Recommended Baccalaureate Competencies and Curricular Guidelines for Geriatric Nursing Care.
