Time for a change in how nursing older people is taught and valued

Zena Aldridge Consultant editor, Nursing Older People

I am incredibly proud to be writing this editorial as consultant editor of Nursing Older People. Not only is it a respected and valued journal, but its existence is validation of older person’s nursing as a specialty. The lack of acknowledgement for our specialty is incredible given that the provision of high-quality health and social care services for an increasingly ageing population is recognised as an international challenge.
