NHCGNE is a specialty organization dedicated to optimal health and quality of life for older adults.

Support from the John A. Hartford Foundation ended in 2016. In our commitment to continue the legacy of these generous years of funding, which provided the impetus for the ascendance of the discipline of gerontologic nursing, NHCGNE is spearheading a fundraising campaign to continue to support operations of the NHCGNE. Your gift will ensure our parents, grandparents and loved ones all get the very best, researched-based gerontological nursing care available.
