Abstract

Geriatrics knowledge and expertise is critical to the care of older adults in skilled nursing facilities. However, opportunities for ongoing geriatrics training for nurses working in skilled nursing facilities are often scarce or nonexistent. This feasibility study describes a mixed-methods analysis of nurses' educational needs and barriers to continuing education in a for-profit skilled nursing facility in an underserved, urban environment. Potential mechanisms to overcome barriers are proposed.
