Adult/Gerontological Acute Care Nurse Practitioner

The AGACNP is a brand new track in the Master's Program designed to develop advanced skills in the care of the acute and/or critical care patient, from young adult to older adult. Acute care NPs can work in an emergency room, operating room, walk-in clinic, doctors' office, critical care unit or community-based environment.  This concentration will enable you to strengthen expertise in advanced physical assessment and diagnostic skills, clinical decision making, prescriptive knowledge and intercollaborative patient care management of high acuity patients. The curriculum includes theoretical content and 700 precepted clinical hours in the acute care setting. Upon program completion, you will be prepared to sit for the American Nurses' Credentialing Center (ANCC) or the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) certification exam. 

Post Masters Certificate

The Post Master's APRN Certificate for the Adult Gerontological Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP) track develops advanced skills for the current MSN graduate in the care of the acute and/or critical care patient, from young adult to older adult.

Required coursework is based on a GAP analysis that compares prior MSN didactic and clinical experience with the AGACNP national certification requirements to determine the courses for the Plan of Study.  Graduates of the Post-Master's APRN Certificate in Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner are prepared to sit for the American Nurses' Credentialing Center (ANCC) or the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN) certification exam.
