Educational Series 2: Advanced Geriatric Practice

In this series, the learner experienced in geriatric care is challenged to take on a higher level of skills and knowledge through courses designed to improve outcomes in and outside of the nursing homes of Texas.

Educational Series 3:Transition to Practice

In this series we offer an array of educational activities for the new nurse needing support and guidance as she moves into long term care and geriatric practice. This series of modules will also be useful to the nurse who wants to move into gerontology from another practice setting.
