The Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence welcomes visits from prospective students as well as members of the community who are interested in our work. Visiting is also a great way to confirm your interest in our programs and to enhance your understanding of what we offer.
Our CGNE Scholars Seminar Series is open to non-students, as are the CGNE Nursing Journal Club meetings and semi-annual colloquia co-sponsored by our center. For a calendar of upcoming events, please see News and Events.
