Provide stability in critical environments

The Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP) program prepares nurses to further their careers as providers in acute and critical care settings. Nurses sharpen their skills to effectively and confidently provide care and prescribe for patients with critical health issues. In addition to assessing the needs of patients, the program will teach the pharmacological, non-pharmacological and interventional theory required for success in high-risk acute care settings.

This flexible program allows students to complete almost all of their coursework online outside of three one-week immersions that must be completed on campus. Within two years of completing the MSN, students have the option of seamlessly transitioning into the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program without losing any credits or duplicating any coursework.
