|The Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner with Advanced Practice Hospice and Palliative Care Specialties program prepares the nurse practitioner in both the adult primary care population focus and the adult advanced practice hospice and palliative care specialty. Diagnosis and management of primary health needs of adults, especially those of vulnerable, the underserved, and diverse populations, are focal.
The curriculum addresses comprehensive health assessment of clients, disease management, guidance and counseling of individuals and families, and multidisciplinary collaboration and referral.
Advanced practice palliative care nursing serves patients, families, and caregivers during serious, progressive illnesses. Palliative care provides holistic care that focuses on disease management, symptom relief, emotional distress, care transitions, and loss.
||Note: Due to the high demand for NP master’s degrees and the limitations of clinical placements and faculty, we are forced to limit our enrollments to our NP programs.
Applications for this program are accepted for Fall admission only. Review the NP Admission Policy for further details.
