Four Online AGACNP Programs

Focus your nursing skills in adult care. Our advanced degree program offers an Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner track designed to help active nurses excel in the acute care environment.

Are you motived to reach the pinnacle of the nursing profession? Our program offers a direct path to a DNP career with the added advantage of structuring a portion of your coursework to focus on adult-gerontology acute care.

If you have your MSN, and you’re now interested in specializing in adult-gerontology acute care, choose our post-master’s certificate. Focus your career in caring for individuals experiencing acute illness.

Go from your MSN to your DNP with an AGPCNP concentration, and you can earn a terminal degree that helps bring you back into the clinical setting. You’ll earn your AGPCNP along with attaining your DNP, allowing you to practice at the highest level and lead interdisciplinary teams

Why become an AGACNP?

More rewarding.


Dedicating your career to the adult-gerontology acute care specialty can be dually rewarding. Not only will you get the chance to provide compassionate care that addresses quality-of-life concerns, but you will also have the opportunity to become part of a professional sector that is generally very well compensated.

 

 

More autonomy.


As with other advanced practice specialties, adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioners work in a fast-paced environment. AGACNPs work in ICU, ER, Step Down, Med-Surg units, and similar areas. AGACNPs must have basic cardiac life support (BLS) and advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) certifications, along with the necessary skill level to perform a full complement of procedures and treatments.

 

Patient education is a critical responsibility.


To succeed in this role, you must have both the confidence and compassion to discuss serious illnesses and treatment plans with patients and their families.

What else does an AGACNP do?

  • Diagnose conditions that could result in a rapid, life-threatening physiological decline.
  • Order and conduct diagnostic tests and screening procedures, such as EKGs and X-rays.
  • Perform emergency medical procedures and other condition-stabilizing interventions.
  • Offer pain relief and sedation through pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic interventions.
  • Administer blood and blood product transfusions and intravenous infusions.
  • Operate and monitor invasive devices such as colostomy or tracheotomy equipment, mechanical ventilators, catheters, gastrointestinal tubes, and central lines.

The Booming Career Outlook

Adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioners are predicted to be in particularly high demand well into the middle of the 21st century, due to a steadily aging population. People over age 65 will comprise 19% of the population by 2030. These same individuals will have a greater life expectancy than previous generations. Because of their lifestyles, they will also have a greater chance of suffering from heart disease, cancer, chronic respiratory problems, and other acute conditions.

This iconic generation comprises 76 million Americans. To prepare for the massive size of today’s aging population, some health systems are adding specialized acute care for the elderly (ACE) units to meet the increasing needs. AGACNPs will play a key role in these practice areas, addressing the unique requirements of older adults in the hospital setting to improve clinical outcomes. In this role, you have the opportunity to help patients maintain the greatest possible degree of independence during hospitalization and after being discharged.

  • The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) anticipates a 31% increase in job opportunities for nurse practitioners between 2012 and 2022.

  • Scrubs Magazine identifies the adult-gerontology nurse practitioner as one of the “Top 10 Highest Paying Nursing Specialties.”

  • The role of nurse practitioner also ranked No. 1 on the 2013 list of “Today’s Hottest Jobs” as chosen by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.

  • Data from the BLS reports an annual median salary of $94,460 for NPs overall. Pay rates are expected to stay elevated as demand continues to grow. 

  • The American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) estimates that there is only one qualified candidate for every four available nurse practitioner jobs.
