Excerpt

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 44.7 million Americans are age 65 or older.1 This constitutes a larger group of older adults than at any other time in U.S. history. When the last of the Baby Boomers, those born around 1965, reach retirement age in 2030, more than 20% of the population will be 65 or older. This article outlines how an aging population will challenge the nursing profession and how the nurses of the future can be prepared.
