John A. Hartford Foundation Centers of Geriatric Nursing Excellence (HCGNEs)

In March, 2000, the John A. Hartford Foundation Trustees endorsed an initiative to Build Academic Geriatric Nursing Capacity in response to the critical needs of the field of nursing in general, and geriatric nursing in particular. The initiative has three components: support for Hartford Centers of Geriatric Nursing Excellence (HCGNEs); scholar and fellow awards, and a Coordinating Center at the American Academy of Nursing.

The HCGNEs are schools of nursing "which have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to the field, have both current experience and future potential to build the next generation of Gerontological nurses, have outstanding capacity in research, practice and education, manifest leadership that transcends their own institution and meet generally accepted criteria of excellence." The grants were renewed for another five years in 2006, and an emphasis on collaborative efforts added. In 2008 four new Centers were funded.

Below you will find detailed information and links to the HCGNEs.
