    Abstract

    Method A survey of gerontological content in nursing and social work programs across Canada (English speaking) was conducted.

Deans or designates of English-speaking nursing and social work programs across Canada were contacted by e-mail. Data was collected by Zoomerang.com. Results Findings indicate that clear progress is being made in ensuring that students have the knowledge and skills needed to provide the care required by older adults in a variety of settings.
