Geriatric Nurses

Employment Prospects


Geriatric nurses work in a variety of settings, depending on their education and personal goals. Many geriatric nurses work in nursing homes, hospitals, retirement communities, or clinics. They may also work in hospice and home care or community nursing programs; others work in private offices for gerontologists or at government agencies. Nurses who teach or do research are most often in academic settings, usually in buildings that are well lighted, comfortable, and busy. Although opportunities are found throughout the country, the largest number of positions are found in areas of the country (such as the Southwest and Southeast) that have a large number of senior citizens.
