About

The Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nursing program at Northeastern University is a specialization within the MS Nursing program that prepares adult/older adult and family nurse practitioners to provide quality primary care.

Overview

Nurse practitioners provide primary care across the life span through direct nursing care, consultation, collaboration, coordination, and referral. These healthcare services are provided in a variety of settings including neighborhood centers, private practices, school-based clinics, and in the home.

The Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nursing program at Northeastern University enables nurse practitioners to articulate a theoretical base for practice and recognize competencies necessary for the provision of healthcare to individuals, families, and communities. Graduate preparation expands the comprehensiveness of the nurse practitioner role to include participation in and use of research development, implementation of health policy, leadership, education, case management, and consultation. Upon completion of the primary care program, graduates are eligible to sit for all national certification exams in their area of practice.
