    Abstract

    This article describes a faculty development initiative implemented by baccalaureate school of nursing faculty to address the urgent need for education and development in gerontological nursing. The Gerontological Nursing Education Curriculum (G-NEC) project was implemented in five states between 2006 and 2009 to (a) increase faculty knowledge of gerontological nursing, and (b) increase gerontological content in participating schools of nursing. A 4-hour workshop presented at 11 schools introduced key concepts and instructional activities related to care of older adults. Participants rated content and format highly; follow-up reports indicated that many made curriculum changes to incorporate gerontological content. The authors describe workshop content and teaching strategies, curriculum changes participants made to incorporate gerontological content, and implications for faculty development.
