The Adult/Gerontological Nurse Practitioner (Adult/GNP) Program prepares the advanced practice nurse as a primary care provider for adult, older adult and frail elder clients in a variety of settings. The curriculum focuses on culturally sensitive care, incorporating health promotion and management of acute and chronic health problems.
Graduates are prepared to apply nursing theory, principles of advanced practice nursing and the research process in the design and delivery of primary care. Knowledge for advanced nursing practice is synthesized from concepts in nursing as well as the biological and social sciences. Graduates of the Adult/GNP program are prepared to take an Adult Nurse Practitioner national certification examination and/or a Gerontological Nurse Practitioner natural certification examination.
