Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner
Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioners (AGACNP) assess, diagnose and manage acutely ill patients in hospital and hospital-to-clinic settings.
The advanced skills of the AGACNP may be used in emergency departments, intensive care units, intermediate care units and specialty clinics such as cardiology or neurology.
Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioners focus on populations needing critical care and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses, disability and/or injury.
Most course work is conducted online. The student is required to come to campus one time per semester during the three practicum courses to learn “hands on” skills.
This post graduate certificate is designed for nurses who already hold a Master's in Nursing degree.
Students will be eligible to take the certification exam and assume leadership roles for the targeted populations.
