Gerontological Nursing Initiative (GNI)
Baylor University LHSON has developed the Gerontological Nursing Initiative (GNI) which will host continuing education events throughout the year in order to provide a variety geriatric topics for nurses working in various health care settings with older adults. This initiative is geared toward expanded gerontological education for RNs whose clinical practice involves the care of older adults and to guide them toward sitting for a national certification examination for certification in gerontological nursing.
The long-term goal for LHSON is to develop and provide future programs and online modules of continuing education courses for Registered Nurses (RNs), Nurse Practitioners (NPs), Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs), Certified Nurse Assistants (CNAs), Home Health Aides (HHAs) and Caregivers to increase gerontological knowledge for better care and understanding of this population. All nursing education events will offer CNE (Continuing Nursing Education) contact hours.
