Electronic databases including MEDLINE, CINAHL, PUBMED and ERIC between 2000 and 2015 were searched in March 2015. Data synthesis: A total of one hundred thirty publications was identified from the databases, eleven were duplicates. All together from one hundred nineteen publications, 101 publications were excluded due to incorrect population and lack of geriatric education. Eighteen articles were eligible for inclusion in the analysis. Results: Geriatric nursing program could effectively enhance students’ nursing competence. A literature review of research revealed that most of the curriculums focusing on gerontological education and trends of geriatric content.
