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.
NSGNA promotes, contributes to, and supports the establishment of gerontological nursing standards within Canada.
