AGACNP Post-Master’s Certificate

As Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN)s evolve in their careers, some are motivated to gain knowledge in an additional specialized field. Completing a Post-Master’s Certificate in a specialized area empowers current nurse practitioners the opportunity for career growth. Additionally, some health care organizations prefer their Nurse Practitioners to be dually certified as FNPs and AGACNPs. Therefore, nurse practitioners preferring this practice arena would benefit from a Post-Master’s Certificate in a different concentration from their original Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree. The following three internship courses (16.5 credit hours) provide 500 clinical hours and lead to certification as an Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner.
