Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, Gerontology

This 9 semester certificate provides practicing APRN’s (NP’s and CNS’s) the opportunity to experience an interdisciplinary approach to managing the complex health care needs of older adults and their families with a specialty focus on culturally sensitive, evidence based care management strategies that include gerontology pharmacology, physiology and assessment considerations. A 60 hour interdisciplinary field experience is part of this certificate program. Students who hold a nurse practitioner certification without gerontology and wish to obtain “gerontology” certification will be required to complete an additional 4 semester hour clinical practicum course with a local preceptor in SARA participating states.
