Master of Science in Nursing in the Field of Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner
The master of science in nursing in the field of adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioner program prepares registered nurses to be advanced practice leaders and inter-professional team members providing care for acute and critically ill patients and their families.

Acute care offers a high-intensity environment that requires the fast-paced critical thinking skills developed in this program.
