Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner

The Brooks Rehabilitation College of Healthcare Sciences is now offering an Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP) track as a full-time or part-time program of study.  The goal of the program is to train advanced practice nurses to manage adults with critically complex and acute episodic illnesses experienced in both the clinic and hospital setting.  Through traditional classroom teaching, live simulation activities and acute care clinical experiences, the graduate will be equipped with advanced diagnostic reasoning skills to analyze, interpret and synthesize complex concepts in patients with active and ongoing chronic illnesses.  Students of JU AGACNP program have the educational preparation to sit for certification examination upon graduation. The graduate program in nursing prepares students to continue study at the Doctoral level.
