Our faculty work closely with PhD students, advance practice nursing students and undergraduate students and, together, they contribute substantively to the knowledge base related to care for older adults.
Candidates for these awards must demonstrate scholarly promise as well as a commitment to careers in nursing education, practice, and research that will benefit older adults.
Gerontological Nursing Honors Program for Undergraduate Students
We have created a gerontological nursing honors track in our undergraduate program and have secured funding from The Hearst Foundations, supplemented by discretionary funds from the Oregon Community Foundation and designated to the HCGNE by OHSU President Robertson, to provide tuition support for students.
The Gerontological Nursing Honors Program (GNHP) is designed for outstanding undergraduate nursing students in the OCNE and Baccalaureate Completion programs to receive additional mentorship and credits related to working with aging adults. This unique honors program helps undergraduate students to better understand the needs of our aging populations and prepares students for taking the next step in their education with an in-depth focus in gerontological nursing. GNHP students receive a small stipend and scholarship funding in the final year of the two-year program of study to offset the costs for the additional three credits required as part of the honors curriculum.
