The Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner track at Regis College develops the decision-making and clinical skills needed to manage the unique challenges of the older population. Class discussions focus on issues related to health, policy, organizations, access to care, and advanced professional practice of geriatric patients. This specialty offers registered nurses opportunities for advancement in pharmacology, pathophysiology and health assessment with nursing theory, process and research.

Classroom learning is applied in supervised clinical preceptorship experiences. The curriculum meets the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) criteria for certification as an Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner.

You can get your MSN on our Weston campus or through our fully online MSN program.
