Master of Science in Nursing in Adult Gerontology Nurse Practitioner - Primary Care
The online M.S.N., A.G.N.P. from Seton Hall University builds the skills graduates need to serve adolescent to elderly populations as a nurse practitioner in acute care or primary care settings. Students prepare for the AANPCB exam and graduate ready to provide evidence-based compassionate care and improve their communities. The program gives students the opportunity to select one of two study tracks. The Primary Care track focuses on disease prevention, health promotion and the management of patients with multisystem health problems. Students prepare for practice in a primary care office, occupational health clinic or university health clinic. The Acute Care track prepares students to take care of patients with acute and chronic disease management within hospital, urgent care, emergency room and subacute settings. The curriculum focuses on a patient population with acute, critical and chronic illness, disability or injury.
