MSN Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner

The Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner track prepares registered nurses with acute-care experience essential to provide direct patient management in acute and complex healthcare settings.  Graduates will apply evidence-based practice principles to provide advanced nursing care to address the specialized physiologic and psychological needs of adult/gerontology patients with acute, critical, and/or complex chronic health conditions.  The AG-ACNP graduate will focus on the provision of restorative, curative, rehabilitative, palliative, and/or supportive end-of-life care as determined by patient needs.  Graduates are eligible to take the Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Certification examination offered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
