About the GNHP
The Gerontological Nursing
Honors Program (GNHP) is designed for nursing students in any OHSU School of
Nursing undergraduate program to receive additional mentorship and credits
related to working with older adults. This unique honors program helps undergraduate
students to better understand the needs of the aging population and prepares
students for taking the next step in their education with an in-depth focus on
gerontological nursing. Students in the GNHP build a strong foundation for
graduate study and future certification in gerontological nursing.
Space is limited in the GHNP and admission is competitively based on application criteria. Applications are available on the School of Nursing website and due May 15, 2016. Notifications of acceptance will be made in the spring prior to GHNP matriculation."
