An Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner is a registered nurse with a graduate degree in nursing that is prepared for advanced practice in adult gerontology health care across the health continuum. This practice includes independent and interdependent decision-making and direct accountability for clinical judgment. Graduate preparation expands the comprehensiveness of the AGNP's role to include participation in and use of research, development and implementation of health policy, leadership, education, case management, and consultation.
A Master’s College of Nursing Comprehensive Examination is required at the end of the program.
For Master's students without a BS in Nursing, additional bridge coursework will be required.
