MS Nursing-Adult and Gerontological Nurse Practitioner
The nurse practitioner tracks are designed to provide students with a broad knowledge base and a concentration in a selected area of clinical specialization.
For nurse practitioner students this knowledge also includes understanding the impact of economics on social and health policy and an introduction to the interdisciplinary collaborative practice relevant to advanced nursing practice.
The program helps students develop confidence in their intellectual and clinical proficiency necessary for advanced practice nursing. Students are guided to reach their full potential through the development of autonomy, leadership, and professionalism.
The nurse practitioner graduate program places students in primary care or other relevant settings to work with persons in their environment through independent nursing assessment, diagnosis, and treatment or referral to another practitioner when necessary.
The clinical specialty is made up of the advanced practice nursing didactic and clinical courses. Faculty members who teach these components are certified APNs who also maintain a practice.
