The Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner program is a 43-credit program that includes 21 credits of general and direct care courses that are shared with other graduate nursing programs. In addition, there are 22 credits of specialty adult-gerontology courses. The program has 650 clinical practicum hours and 30 laboratory practice hours.
Students accepted into this program will enroll in a cohort of no more than six students per CRNP faculty clinical supervisor. This curriculum is set-up lockstep, so that students must take nurse practitioner courses with their designated cohort. Clinical practicum experiences, which commence in spring of the second year, will be arranged by Dr. Kathy Gray, NP Program Director and CRNP faculty.
Students take four general core and four different direct care courses. They also complete specialized requirements of their chosen concentration in Acute or Primary Care. The Nurse Practitioner Primary Care track includes:
