The National Hartford Centers of Gerontological Nursing Excellence (NHCGNE), located at The Gerontological Society of America, has announced $1.2 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 United States.

The five Claire M. Fagin Fellows will each receive up to $120,000 to support post-doctoral research training, mentorship, leadership and career development. The six 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.

“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 NHCGNE Executive Director J Taylor Harden, PhD, RN, FAAN.
