Gerontological Nursing: Competencies for Care


Editor: Kristen L. Mauk

Contributing authors: Jean Lange, Sheila Grossman



Sheila Grossman and Jean Lange are contributing authors, "Theories of aging".

Book description: Gerontological Nursing uses the competencies set forth by the AACN/Hartford Institute at NYU’s 2000 document, Older Adults: Recommended Baccalaureate Competencies and Curricular Guidelines for Geriatric Nursing Care, to help students provide excellent care for older adults. With a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to gerontological nursing, the text builds upon the medical surgical knowledge that students have gained in previous courses. Including numerous case studies, the book also contains critical thinking and personal reflection questions, key terms, a glossary of terms, and classroom activities. Perfect for instructors who are expected to integrate gerontology into the curriculum, Gerontological Nursing is accompanied by PowerPoint slides, test questions, and an online instructor’s manual.
