Gerontological health care is undergoing a revolution, much like that of the feminist movement of the 1960s. Fundamental changes in health care require revisions in nursing education to ensure appropriate care of older adults in the least restrictive environment. The purpose of this study is to promote the preparation of future nurses who have the knowledge and the skills necessary to provide nursing care for the growing cohorts of older adults. A theoretical rationale for a new perspective in nursing education is discussed. An experiential clinical learning activity based on the functional model of gerontological health care is examined. This home visit clinical learning activity provides nursing students with the opportunity to practice nursing reflective of the health care needs of older adults. Strategies for replication of this clinical learning activity are provided.
