The AGPCNP program prepares students to comprehensively assess, diagnose, and treat common acute illnesses and manage chronic stable health conditions of adolescents, adults, and older adults. Our program places an emphasis on health promotion, evidence-based practice in support of quality outcomes, guidance and counseling of individuals and families, and caring for the vulnerable and underserved. Students will complete 600 direct care supervised clinical practicum hours in a variety of outpatient settings and specialties. Upon graduation, students are prepared to become certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Commission (ANCC) or the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) and to obtain Nurse Practitioner specialty certification by the State of Michigan. Our students' success rate on certification exams is well above the national average.
