Laws Impacting Curriculum on Older Adults

On September 18, 2002, California Governor Davis signed two laws that impact the curriculum on older adults.
  • AB 2202 - California State University (CSU) students who will be serving senior populations (includes social workers, nurses, physical therapists, and psychologist) must compete a curriculum in the field of gerontology, and psychologist) must complete a curriculum in the field of gerontology.  This law requires each state university to develop guidelines for gerontology training and a plan for recruiting students in the field.

  • SB 953 - Applicants for licensure (such as Licensed Clinical Social Worker - LCSW) must complete specified education requirements regarding aging and long-term care.
