A Seniors'Advisory Committee was established to enhance gerontological content in an undergraduate nursing program and was composed of five women and two men ranging in age from 68 to 84 years, three faculty members, and a secretary.
In the first year, the Committee met on six occasions and was to have three general areas of involvement.
The members of the Committee were to advise faculty concerning gerontological content and learning resources for two undergraduate courses.
They were to make recommendations concerning the nursing students'community experience with seniors.
Lastly, they were to recruit seniors from the community who would participate in the courses in ways recommended by the Committee.
The seniors reviewed the courses, advised the faculty, recruited other seniors, and actively participated in classes and in seminars.
Evaluations of Committee function and seniors'involvement in teaching that were completed by the seniors, the students, and the faculty were positive.
All three groups confirmed that the collaboration between faculty and older persons provided students with an enriched gerontological curriculum.
