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 comes to campus one time per semester during the four practicum courses to learn “hands on” skills.
Graduates will be eligible to take the certification exam and assume leadership roles for the targeted populations.
