Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Postgraduate Certificate (AGAC-NP) Overview
If you’re a registered nurse with a master’s degree who is ready to expand your professional skills, consider earning an Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Postgraduate Certificate at Purdue Global. Gain expertise in the management of acutely ill medical, surgical, and critical care adult patient populations and working with an interprofessional direct care team.
The acute care nurse practitioner program includes online study and a series of clinical practice sessions that include working virtually with the skills lab faculty and staff using an Oculus Quest VR headset. This provides an innovative alternative to performing the duties required in the skills lab in person. Purdue Global is committed to your health, safety, and academic achievement, so we have replaced the 2.5-day, in-person skills intensive with this virtual experience for all terms through April 2021.*
