MSN Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Track

Graduate Department APRN Program

Overview

The Master of Science in Nursing Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Track (AGACNP) prepares graduates to provide culturally sensitive, comprehensive care for adults with common episodic and chronic health problems. The AGACNP assumes responsibility for promoting, maintaining, and restoring health to adults who are chronically, acutely or critically ill. The AGACNP is an online program that requires occasional travel to the Lubbock campus.

A Post-Masters Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Certificate is also available to those who currently hold a Master of Science in Nursing and wish to assume a specialized role in the health care of promoting, maintaining, and restoring health to adults who are chronically, acutely or critically ill.

Upon completion of course requirements, graduates of the Masters and Post Masters Programs are eligible to sit for the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Certification Exam, or the American Association of Critical Care Nurses’ Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Certification Exam.
