This post-master's certificate program prepares the nurse who already has a graduate degree in nursing to become academically eligible for certification as an Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner. The program prepares nurses for advanced practice with patients 13 and older in primary care settings. The graduate has advanced knowledge of health promotion and disease prevention, advanced physical assessment, diagnosis, and management of chronic and episodic health problems. Graduates will be academically eligible to take the national certification examination for the Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP).
The post-master’s certificate curriculum is individually designed based on the course work documented on the transcript of the student’s master’s degree. The number of credits required for the completion of the certificate will vary.
The courses listed are required in the post-master’s curriculum plan unless these courses, or their acceptable equivalent, are documented on the master’s transcript. A minimum of 12 credits is required for the post-master’s certificate.
