Adult Gerontology Nurse Practitioner (Graduate Certificate) | ASU Nursing and Health Innovation

Adult Gerontology Nurse Practitioner (Graduate Certificate)

This Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education-accredited certificate program is designed for nurses with a master's degree in nursing who seek to become adult gerontology nurse practitioners and for nurse practitioners with a master's degree or DNP who seek additional certification as adult gerontology nurse practitioners. This certificate program is offered in a hybrid iCourse and in-person format that requires students to travel to campus for orientation and then two or three times per semester. Adult gerontology-focused theory and clinical courses include theories, principles and clinical skills in the care of adults across the lifespan.

Focused clinical experiences are arranged with appropriate preceptors and administrators. Every attempt will be made to arrange this in the student's geographical area. In the event that clinical sites are unavailable in that area or if the faculty determine the student needs additional faculty supervision of skills, the student will be required to complete the clinical experience in the Phoenix area. Rural health and experiences with disadvantaged and multicultural populations are encouraged, and sites are available for these experiences.
