About the Foundation

The National Conference of Gerontological Nurse Practitioners Foundation (NCGNPF) was created for the purpose of supporting NCGNP members in education, research, and practice.

In 2008 the NCGNPF name was changed to the Gerontological Advanced Practice Nurses Association Foundation (GAPNAF).


Mission

The mission of the Gerontological Advanced Practice Nurses Association Foundation, Inc. (GAPNAF) is twofold:

Goals

The goals of the GAPNAF are to promote leadership and scholarship in advanced nursing practice, education, and research to enhance the health care for older adults through:

  • Resource development: Develop revenue streams to sustain scholarly activities;
  • Scholarly activities: Provide financial support for research and educational opportunities; and,
  • Administrative activities: Enhance the organizational structure and function of the Foundation.
