ALVAREZ, Angela Maria et al. Scientific Department of Gerontological Nursing of the Brazilian Nursing Association. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2013, vol.66, n.spe, pp.177-181. ISSN 0034-7167.

This paper aimed to consider the creation of the Scientific Department of Gerontological Nursing within the Brazilian Nursing Association, considering the context of population ageing, and the development and consolidation of this specialty in the country. In the reflexive process, it was possible to rely on the historical analysis of the revised literature and authors' reports. The results showed the movement of nurses, in recent decades, to the production of knowledge, as well as their incorporation by the entity, and the commitment of its members to achieve the goals proposed to the Scientific Department of Gerontological Nursing. It is concluded that its creation represents a milestone to the scientific and political organization of the nursing professionals who seek to qualify themselves for an autonomous and competent care of the elderly and their families.
