Education in Gerontological Nursing
For undergraduate education, 'Gerontological Nursing' was introduced as one of the fundamental nursing subjects in 1990. For the first six years, 90 lecture hours were mandatory, however, from 1996, a 4-unit practicum was added as a part of the curriculum.
For postgraduate education, there are institutions that provide master's and doctoral programs in Gerontological Nursing.
