About

The Nursing (Concentration in Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner) program at Virginia Commonwealth University prepares graduates for advanced practice registered nurse roles by developing the knowledge and skills needed to manage acutely ill adults, ranging from adolescents to the elderly, through all phases of their hospitalization. 

Overview

Students learn to manage patients through comprehensive physical and psychosocial assessments, use of decision-making/diagnostic reasoning processes, performance of advanced practice skills and procedures, and implementation of evidence-based treatment strategies. Graduates of the Nursing (Concentration in Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner) program at Virginia Commonwealth University are prepared to diagnose and manage complex health problems of adults across the life span, including acute/critical illness and injuries, as well as exacerbations of chronic conditions.
