This Gerontological and Adult Nurse Practitioner program at The City University of New York prepares graduates to provide primary care for adults and older adults in the community and in a variety of health care settings.
Students learn to apply expert knowledge and research findings through 42 credits of coursework and 735 hours of supervised clinical experience. Graduates of the program are eligible for New York State NP certification and meet the educational requirements for national board certification by the American Nurses Credentialing Center and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Program.
Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioners engage in primary care as providers of direct health care services. This includes practice in health promotion, health protection, and disease prevention. AGNPs employ evidence-based clinical practice to screen and identify health promotion needs, provide guidance and counseling to meet patient needs, diagnose typical and atypical health problems and illnesses, develop and implement treatment plans, and direct and oversee other aspects of clinical service delivery within an integrated system of health care.
The focus of the adult-gerontology primary care NP is to provide patient-centered, quality care to the adult and older adult population. Patient populations include young adults (including late adolescents and emancipated minors), adults, and older adults (including young-old, old, and old-old adults). Graduates of AGNP programs are prepared to provide comprehensive primary care in ambulatory, community-based settings.
