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 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).
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 you may be required to travel to clinical sites for these experiences, and if you are unable to do so, your progress in the curriculum will be delayed.
