Message from the Director

Welcome to the University of Iowa Barbara and Richard Csomay Center for Gerontological Excellence! 

We are proud to be one of the top gerontological nursing program among public universities and one of the founding John A. Hartford Foundation Center(s) of Geriatric Nursing Excellence. Our major goal is to prepare exceptional nurse scientists who will provide the critically necessary academic leadership in teaching, research, and practice in gerontological nursing. We take pride in our outstanding gerontological doctoral programs, as well as strong interdisciplinary educational experiences. As a student or faculty you will be part of cutting-edge research under the leadership of world-renowned nurse researchers.

I invite you to become a part of our Center. We are confident our programs provide leadership in setting the future of gerontological research, education, and practice to improve quality of life of older Americans.
