About

The MSN Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AG-ACNP) at Ohio University online program prepares registered nurses to provide direct patient management and patient care in acute and complex settings at the advanced practice level. 

Overview

Program Overview

  • The MSN Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AG-ACNP) at Ohio University online program prepares students to focus on management of common adult health problems and develop advanced clinical diagnostic and decision-making skills to improve the quality of health care in under-served populations.
  • The MSN program consists of both didactic and practice-based clinical performance courses. The didactic courses present the nursing knowledge, theoretical concepts, models, and research that inform patient care and evidence-based practice. 
  • The practice-based courses provide opportunities for students to apply knowledge; practice skills; plan, implement and evaluate interventions and programs; and learn the full scope of the role for which they are preparing. There is a core set of courses that all students (regardless of the chosen MSN track option) complete. These seven courses will be completed before a student begins the clinical performance courses.
  • The Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AG-ACNP) track option prepares students to be eligible for certification as an Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. AG-ACNPs provide direct patient management and patient care in acute and complex care settings.
