When you specialize in gerontological nursing, you are prepared for leadership roles in continuing care, acute care, community nursing, home care, health promotion and primary care.

In Alberta, there is a growing demand for independent practitioners in the area of self-care for older persons, with an emphasis on teaching preventive strategies. As a gerontological nurse, you can fill this demand.

The Alberta Learning Information Service (ALIS) hosts detailed occupational profiles, salary survey data, trend reports and assessment tools to help you choose and plan a life-long career that matches your skills and interests.
