The GNLA is an 18-month mentored, leadership development experience offered by the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI). The purpose of the academy is to prepare and position nurses in various healthcare settings to lead interprofessional teams in the improvement of healthcare quality for older adults and their families. Designed for experienced gerontological nurses, the Fellows of the GNLA are chosen through a competitive selection process.
