18NE018 - Advancing Care for Older Adults: Gerontological Nurse Certification Review Course CGEC

Description

This course will provide RNs, LPNs, and nursing home administrators with a framework of gerontological expertise to prepare them to improve their clinical practice. RNs and nursing home administrators will receive training needed to take the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Gerontological Nurse Certification Exam. Note: LPNs are invited to attend this program for professional development but are not eligible to sit for the ANCC Exam.

The rapidly growing population of older adults in the US requires nurses to develop the clinical skills and knowledge to plan, manage and evaluate the complex health care needs of older adults. Nurses care for older adults in a variety of settings ranging from active older adults in the community to frail older adults in the acute and long-term care setting. Nurses must be prepared to incorporate health promotion and chronic disease management principles in practice to maximize older adults’ functional status and independence.

Target Audience

The target audience is LPN, APRN, and RN. LPNs are welcome to enroll for professional development, however they are not eligible to take the ANCC Exam.

  • Prepare for the ANCC Gerontological Nurse Certification Exam

  • Examine the implications of regulatory, legal, and health policy issues for nursing practice related to the care of older adults
