New York, June 21, 2000 -- The Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing today announced that it had selected 3 Fellows and 12 Scholars from a large number of highly qualified applicants to participate in its Geriatric Nursing Research Scholars and Fellows Program. All the fellows and scholars are actively engaged in gerotological nursing research and are post-doctoral nursing faculty at prestigious universities and colleges from the western states. The purpose of the Program is to foster new gerontological nursing researchers, with the long-term goal of enhancing nursing research contributions to shaping the quality of healthcare older adults receive.

Each year the Fellows and Scholars are drawn from a different sector of the country and this year, the region is the western states. Prior Programs have focused on the midwest and the east coast regions. "Each year we specifically seek outstanding new scholars who are actively conducting significant research in gerontologic nursing ," said Terry Fulmer, RN, PhD, FAAN, co-director of the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing and seminar chair.

The Program consists of two parts, beginning with a week-long seminar to be held at New York University's Division of Nursing from June 25 through June 30, 2000. During this time, all the Fellows and Scholars are brought together with teaching faculty, who are all nationally recognized nursing researchers, for an intensive and interactive experience of critical analysis and research skill. This year, the teaching partners are from the University of California ­ San Francisco, the Oregon Health Sciences University and the University of Washington. The keynote speaker is Patricia Grady, RN, PhD, FAAN, Director, National Institute for Nursing Research.

In the second part of the Program, the Fellows receive a $5000 award towards their research efforts and will continue to work with a mentor for two months following the seminar.
