This legislation authorized the establishment of traineeships for individuals who are preparing for advanced education nursing degrees in geriatric nursing, long-term care, gero-psychiatric nursing or other nursing areas that specialize in the care of the elderly population.

Grants to support development of individuals in geriatric education may be used to:
1) Provide training to individuals who will provide geriatric care for the elderly; 2) Develop and disseminate curricula relating to the treatment of the health problems of elderly individuals; 3) Train faculty members in geriatrics; 4) Provide continuing education to individuals who provide geriatric care; or 5) Establish traineeships for individuals who are preparing for advanced education nursing degrees in geriatric nursing, long-term care, gero-psychiatric nursing or other nursing areas that specialize in the care of the elderly population.

Projects must provide education and training for individuals providing geriatric care.

Applicants are encouraged to use or adapt existing curricula as appropriate to the proposed project rather than expend resources to develop new curricula.

Geriatric educational resources are available through entities such as the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing (http://www.hartfordign.org/), Hartford Centers of Excellence in Geriatric Nursing Education (http://www.geriatricnursing.org/centers/), the Administration on Aging (http://www.aoa.gov), and The Long-Term Services and Supports Workforce Competency Model at:
