Hartford Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence

The Hartford Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence (CGNE) at the OHSU School of Nursing is part of a major initiative by the John A. Hartford Foundation, Inc., to build academic geriatric nursing capacity. One of five centers nationally, the CGNE is dedicated to preparing nurse leaders who are committed to improving the health and health care of older adults. The center integrates practice, education, research, and policy through four major activities:

  • Post-Master’s Certificate in Advanced Gerontological Nursing
  • Post Baccalaureate to Ph.D. Program
  • Academic Nursing Partners
  • Gerontological Research

As the nation’s population of older adults grows, it is increasingly important to educate more nurses in gerontology. Your gift to support the center will help us to ensure that our programs remain strong.
