How to Become a Gerontologist in New Mexico - NM

The State of Next Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department, which has responsibility to oversee numerous industries, professions and trades within the state, does not issue licenses or regulate gerontologists.  (However nursing home administrators are subject to licensing requirements by the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department.) 


There are opportunities available to earn a gerontology certification in New Mexico that offers students a multidisciplinary approach to a career path to becoming part of a growing profession working with the elderly. The applied gerontology certificate program provides students with a knowledge base to understand aging as seen from the social, psychological, economic, physical and practice perspectives. Coursework covers a survey and introduction to the field of gerontology, the physiology of aging, mental health and the elderly, healthy aging, pain assessment and management in the older adult, death, dying and hospice, sleep cycles and disturbances in the aged, the elderly woman, elder abuse, cultural sensitivity in the elderly, and aging and communication disorders. Some certificate programs also offer education on aging in the southwestern multicultural society, with emphasis on health care issues.

This certificate is relevant for registered nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, occupational therapists, administrators, psychologists, physicians, chiropractors, individuals who volunteer, as well as other professionals in the field of aging.
