The Adult/Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner option prepares graduates to care for adults from adolescence through the lifespan. A holistic and multidisciplinary approach to care focuses on health promotion, disease prevention and illness management. A systems approach is used to explore and manage common reoccurring health problems in adults. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the Adult Nurse Practitioner certification examination offered by the ANCC or the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
