Coalition of Geriatric Nursing Organizations (CGNO)

Coalition of Geriatric Nursing Organization (CGNO)

The Coalition of Geriatric Nursing Organizations (CGNO), representing over 28,700 nurses, is comprised of the leading associations representing nurses who provide geriatric care in a variety of clinical settings. By leveraging its collective strengths, CGNO speaks with one voice to promote a healthcare environment for older adults that reflect accessibility, evidence-based practice, and high quality, person-centered care. Since its inception in 2001, CGNO has been coordinated by the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing.

CGNO pursues activities that enhance the competencies and status of nurses who work with older adults, with a particular emphasis on long term care. By advocating for practice standards and regulatory action that recognize the unique needs and worth of older adults, CGNO aims to assure care that encourages the highest potential for function and quality of life in this population.
