National Hartford Centers of Gerontological Nursing Excellence awards new fellows, scholars
Date:8/13/2012

The National Hartford Centers of Gerontological Nursing Excellence (HCGNE) today announced $1.38 million in awards to the latest cohort of Claire M. Fagin Fellows and Patricia G. Archbold Scholars studying gerontological nursing in academic settings across the U.S.

Four Claire M. Fagin Fellows will each receive up to $120,000 to support postdoctoral research training, mentorship, leadership, and career development. Nine Patricia G. Archbold Scholars will receive grants of up to $100,000 to support their doctoral training and launch careers in academic gerontological nursing; one-third of these scholars are members of an underrepresented minority group.

The National HCGNE's Coordinating Center is located at The Gerontological Society of America. Since 2000, this program has had the generous backing of the John A. Hartford Foundation, supported with monies from The Atlantic Philanthropies and the Mayday Fund. These partners have invested over $80 million in national efforts to build academic gerontological nursing capacity through their support. The initiative has supported over 200 predoctoral and postdoctoral nursing scholars who have stimulated excitement about the field among nursing students and practicing nurses. They are the leaders who will shape future care for older persons.

"This program contributes towards important recommendations of the Institute of Medicine's report on the future of nursing that the nation provide more leadership training and opportunities for nurses and that we increase the number of doctorally prepared nurses," said National HCGNE Program Director J Taylor Harden, PhD, RN, FAAN. "These highly skilled scholars are deeply committed to improving health care for aging patients."

The 2012 cohort of Patricia G. Archbold Scholars and Claire M. Fagin Fellows are a highly qualified group of dedicated gerontological nurses who will strengthen the knowledge base in such areas as family caregiving, home health and hospice care, care for persons with stroke, and critical illness in elders.
