No Older Adult Left Behind, an article written by Ph.D. student Staja (Star) Booker RN, MS, was recently published in the winter 2014 issue of MinorityNurse.

The following excerpt is from the article as it appeared in MinorityNurse:

“Older adults are one of the fastest growing populations in the United States. According to the 2010 US census, there are approximately 40 million adults 65 years and older, an increase of over 5 million since 2000. This burgeoning growth in the US and worldwide necessitates that emerging entry-level nurse generalists be competent in caring for older adults. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) has recommended that nursing curricula include a stand-alone gerontological nursing course with a didactic and clinical component.”
