The survey was given to 132 faculty members, including 76 clinical instructors, 40 associate professors and 16 professors. The nursing faculty in general had a positive attitude toward older people (M=3.36, SD 0.25) and teachers' attitudes were higher than those of their nursing students (M=3.18, SD0.29). Results: This study results suggests that Saudi nursing curricula should include more extensive gerontology content and clinical experience with older people.
