Gero Nurse Prep Fills the Senior Care Training Gap for RNs

It’s startling but true. Two-thirds of nurses working in the U.S. have had no training in senior care. The AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep program was created to help fill this gap in geriatric nursing expertise. This unique program prepares RNs for the American Nurses Credentialing Center board certification test in gerontological nursing. Consider this:

· Gero Nurse Prep is a smart and effective use of training dollars. RNs can study on their own schedules and earn 30 CEUs by completing the program. The cost of the program is current sale price of $690 or $23 per CEU.

· Gero Nurse Prep Alums boast a 96% pass rate on the ANCC gerontological nursing certification exam. ANCC board certification (RN-BC) is the gold standard for demonstrating clinical excellence in geriatric patient care and only costs an additional $395. 

· Gero Nurse Prep and ANCC board certification sets you apart from your competition. Less than one percent of nurses have this prestigious credentialing in gerontological nursing. So, for an investment under $1,100 per nurse leader, providers can have a clinical competitive edge when negotiating with ACOs, MCOs and hospitals. 

· Gero Nurse Prep and ANCC certification are great tools for attracting and retaining great RNs. Offering credentialing can be more appealing than the traditional “sign-on” bonuses everyone else offers and it can even be packaged as an additional bonus to the traditional monetary “sign-on” bonus. Certification is also a great incentive for those talented RNs that you want to keep. 

Clinical competency is fundamental in today’s value-based purchasing marketplace. The AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep program is a pathway to demonstrating your geriatric nursing expertise. Watch this video to learn more and try a free demo of the AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep program today.
