About the course

This concentration focuses on primary care of adults and older adults, featuring courses in mental health and nursing informatics. Students receive a concentration of clinical experiences culminating in a final practicum where students synthesize knowledge for application to adults and older adults. With new National Task Force guidelines effective in 2015, graduates will be eligible for national certification as adult nurse practitioners. Graduates will also be eligible to take the value added specialty certification as a gerontology NP. In-depth coverage of gerontology enhances NP preparation and is critical to addressing the needs of well and frail elders. Employment opportunities are diverse, e.g. primary care, internal medicine and frail elders in a variety of settings.
