What You’ll Learn
South College’s Master of Science in Nursing program with Concentration in Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP) is a flexible and affordable way to work toward advancing your career. Innovative, challenging, and comprehensive, the MSN-AGACNP program is designed to further develop the critical thinking and analytical skills needed in today’s competitive and evolving healthcare environments.
Our blended approach to education combines cutting-edge online coursework with hands-on clinical practice experiences. And best of all, our hybrid format is designed to accommodate the schedules of working nursing professionals. The program is designed for completion in 21 months full-time.
The role of the adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioner is to provide advanced nursing care to adults, older adults, and elderly patients with acute, chronic, and critical conditions. The AG-ACNP must work collaboratively with a host of different healthcare professionals in order to stabilize and improve the health of patients.
MSN-AGACNP students are able to tailor learning to their long-term professional objectives through topic selection for course papers and projects, and by recommending their own clinical sites for practicum components (must be approved by South College).
