Why Join NSGNA?
Gerontological Nursing is practiced within acute and long-term care, and in the community, where healthcare, education, or resources are provided to older adults. NSGNA members bring a wealth of valuable skills and experience that shape the progression of excellence within gerontological nursing. Collaborating with other professionals and healthcare services such as occupational therapy, physiotherapy, social services or Veteran's Affairs, we are able to share professional experience, ideals and goals. NSGNA promotes, contributes to and supports the establishment of nursing standards within Canada.
Standards of practice adopted by the Canadian Gerontological Nursing Association (CGNA) members in 1996, provided the basis for professional certification in gerontological nursing available to nurses since 1998. We invite you to join us as a practicing RN, a Licensed Practical Nurse, nursing student or as a retired professional nurse, to ensure NSGNA's ongoing contribution to nursing excellence in Nova Scotia.
The number of nurses who describe their practice as including care of older adults is growing.
