The purpose of the study was to evaluate the influence of a geriatric nursing education workshop on nursing staff competency. Forty-three nurses participated in the study, which used an intervention and comparison group research design with pretest and posttest measures. The results indicated that participation in the workshop increased nurses' knowledge of gerontologic issues and improved nurses' ability to assess patients and to plan and document nursing interventions in patient charts. The intervention did not have a significant impact on collaborative practice, role ambiguity, or job satisfaction.
