Research studies published in the 40 volumes and associated issues of Geriatric Nursing were examined to identify the trends and growth of geriatric nursing as a specialty. Seven hundred and fifty three research studies and literature reviews were abstracted from 238 issues of the journal and characterized by the purpose of the study, design, study population/sample and setting, and study results. In forty years, Geriatric Nursing served and continues to serve as an important dissemination vehicle for geriatric nursing research, benefitting both practitioners and older adults.
