The Gerontological Certification Review Course is a collection of 13 modules created by the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing in 2021.

Additionally, learners can further test their knowledge with two provided practice tests of 125 multiple choice questions each covered throughout the course. Learners can reference rationales for each question response with the accompanying practice test guide.
