About the Program

The focus of the AGACNP track is to prepare graduates to provide patient-centered quality care to the adult and older adult population. The Adult-Gerontology Acute Care NP applies evidence in practice designed to improve quality of care and health outcomes. The adult gerontology population-focused competencies incorporated into the Master of Science program build on the NP Core Competencies (NONPF, 2011, 2012).

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to take the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Certification Exam.
