Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner

The Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (A-G ACNP) track prepares graduates to provide independent and collaborative management of young, middle-aged and older adults from diverse populations who are suffering from acute, critical or chronic illnesses. The program emphasizes the stabilization and management of this population in a variety of settings. Practice sites are variable, but focused in high-acuity inpatient settings.

A variety of clinical sites are available but must be within the state of Florida.  Travel may be required periodically for structured clinical learning experiences. Individualized clinical learning experiences are arranged in appropriate health care settings. A-G ACNP graduates are eligible for national certification through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN).

Track Coordinators: Elida Benitez, DNP, AG-ACNP and Ashley Thompson, DNP, AGACNP-BC

Progression in advanced practice nursing tracks requires supervised and precepted experience in specialized clinical settings. Students admitted to advance practice nursing tracks are advised that they may be required to travel to clinical sites for these experiences, and if unable to do so, progress in the curriculum will be delayed.
