The Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing

Since its start in 1996, the singular mission of the Hartford Institute has been to shape the quality of health care of older adults through excellence in nursing practice. The commitment to this mission exhibited by the dedicated Hartford Institute leadership, staff and affiliate organizations has made the HIGN today a globally recognized geriatric presence. The Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing is the geriatric arm of the NYU College of Nursing, and has become, over the years, a beacon for all those who wish to advance geriatrics in nursing.
