geriatrics as a specialty

  1. I saw once a program for home study to earn a specialty license in geriatrics but now I can't find it? Does anyone know of such a program and where I can find the info?

    There is the Gerontological Nurse certification for the RN thru ANCC. Also there is the Certified Long Term Care for the LPN. The RN signs her name then RNC whereas the LPN, I believe uses LPN, CLTC. Your DON should have the information on how to contact the correct certification board.
