  • Gerontology Resources for APRN Preceptors and Students ToolkitCareer Center

    The Education- and Toolkit Committees of GAPNA launched their 2017 newly revised “Gerontology Resources for APRN Preceptors and Students,” toolkit.

    The goal of this toolkit is to make geriatric and gerontological content accessible to those caring for older adults. It is designed with advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) students, preceptors, and educators in mind, and it provides a single portal to comprehensive resources.
