Adult/Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Certificate

The Adult/Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP) Certificate develops the knowledge and skills required for advanced practice nurses to provide primary health care to a culturally diverse population of adults. The Adult/Gerontology Primary Care nurse practitioner focuses upon assessment and management of common acute and chronic health care problems of adult and older adult patients in the primary care setting. A variety of practice settings are utilized: primary care or internal medicine clinics; occupational health clinics; home based care; long-term, assisted living or post-acute care; rural health clinics; and other adult and geriatric sites. 

Required didactic courses are offered online. Practicum courses NRSG 903 , NRSG 904, and NRSG 905 require visits to the KU Medical Center campus several times during each semester for Clinical Intensive workshops and Standardized Patient exams. The AGPCNP Certificate is not offered for the 2024-2025 admission cycle.
