Adult/Gerontology Nurse Practitioner Post-Master's Certificate


Return to Nursing Return to: Nursing

The Post-Master’s Certificate as an Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner is designed for master’s prepared nurses, seeking specialization as an Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner in Primary Care (AGNP). The certificate program builds on previous learning, integrating the knowledge and skills germane to the AGNP who will provide holistic, patient-centered primary care to individuals across the adult age spectrum from adolescence to older adults. The course of study for the post-master’s students, with 31 credits of the AGNP core and specialty courses, has the same program outcomes previously listed for the Master of Science Degree, Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner-Primary Care Track, and is offered in a part-time format.  Students who have taken graduate-level advanced pathophysiology and advanced pharmacology course in the past five years may challenge NUR 607 Advanced Pharmacology  and/or NUR 611 Advanced Pathophysiology , by demonstrating satisfactory knowledge of the content through examination.
