The School of Nursing offers a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) as an Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP).  Upon completing the requirements, the graduate will be eligible to sit for one of the National Certification Exams offered by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) or the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).  The 49 semester hour Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner MSN concentration includes core courses in nursing, support courses in the social sciences, and specialty courses in adult gerontology acute care nursing.  An intensive clinical practicum (total 630 clock hours) parallels the didactic courses, thus providing ongoing opportunity for application of the theory to clinical practice.
