Gerontology (Nursing)

Gerontology (Nursing)

by Rhonda Lawes, PhD, RN

Gerontology is the study of aging, including the biological and cognitive changes resulting from the aging process.

It involves nearly every branch of nursing; therefore, to provide competent care and to appreciate the changes that develop with age, a nurse requires a solid understanding of the aging process, of anatomy and physiology, and of the physical, emotional, and cognitive changes experienced by older adults.

In addition to these factors, this course will also teach you how to recognize the difference between aging with and without comorbidities.

This series was extremely useful for my Variations in Health II class. Semester 2 focused on older adults and age related changes. This series really helped to solidify what I learned in class.
