The Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner program offered by the University of California, San Francisco enables training within a diversity of hospitalized patient practice settings, such as but not limited to, internal medicine, transplant, cardiology, neurosurgical, oncology, trauma, intensive care and emergency department.
The Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner can legally diagnose and treat medical conditions. In addition, some AG ACNPs provide direct patient management from admission to discharge in collaboration with the physician and other members of the health care team. AG ACNPs may also continue to monitor the patient as the patient moves into the outpatient setting to ensure successful transition after discharge and complete resolution of transition needs. The structure of the role depends upon the collaborative agreement with physicians and other members of the health care team.
Upon completion of the specialty, students will be eligible to apply for national certification through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN).
