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.
