Nurse Practitioner Programs

Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Specialty

Nurse practitioner students who pursue the adult-gerontology acute care specialty will be prepared to diagnose and treat adult and older adult patients who are acutely or critically ill, including those who have conditions requiring complex chronic specialty care.

In this program, you’ll gain the skills to deliver advanced nursing care that restores health, prevents complications, and navigates patients and families across health care settings in a rapidly changing environment.

Graduates of the AGACNP program are well-prepared to meet these challenges and are practicing in ICUs — cardiac, medical, surgical, trauma, and neuromedicine — hospital inpatient floors, and outpatient specialty care clinics.

Degree Plan

To earn your master’s degree in adult-gerontology acute care you need to complete 47 credits and 672 clinical hours.
