Specialist Diploma in Community Gerontology Nursing


The Academy launched the first of its in-house developed ‘signature courses’ in 2012 to offer a Community Gerontological Nursing Certificate to experienced, registered nurses that they may enhance their skills at providing cutting edge, person-centred care to elders living in the community. It takes into account the position of the community nurse who is required to think on her feet amid variable home environments and resource availability to take a care management approach and pull together the care needed to help the client maintain optimal health and wellness.

In 2016, Tsao Foundation collaborated with Ngee Ann Polytechnic to jointly develop the Specialist Diploma in Community Gerontology Nursing for registered nurses to acquire the knowledge and skills to make informed clinical decisions to support the health of elders living at home.
