Preparing students to be advanced practice nurses providing care to acute and chronically ill adults.
Students in the dual Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Clinical Nurse Specialist + Nurse Practitioner track complete all requirements of the AGACNP and AGCNS tracks. Students seeking to pursue a dual AGAC CNS + NP are required to talk with the director of advanced practice about suitability and alignment with their personal goals. The dual track plan of study is a demanding curriculum with implications for licensure, certification and credentialing in one’s career as an advanced practice nurse. Successful dual track students typically do not work concurrently.
Graduates are eligible for the adult-gerontology acute care CNS certification exam administered by AACN or ANCC and the adult-gerontology acute care NP certification exam administered by AACN or ANCC.
