Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence

Collaborative Seminar Series

During fall and spring semesters annually, the Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence partners with the Center for Nursing Research to develop and provide a Collaborative Seminar Series. While faculty and students from the College of Nursing and other associated Penn State departments and colleges attend the seminars with gerontological content, we invite our clinical partners as well as interested community member to join these educational opportunities!

Many of the seminars provide 1.0 contact hours (continuing nursing education credits) for Registered Nurses, as the Penn State College of Nursing is a PSNA-approved provider. 

Seminars are being hosted both in-person and virtually. Registration is required, however, they are free and open to the public.
