The average age in the U.S. is rising as baby boomers age and birth rates decrease. As a result, the demand for health professionals specializing in adult gerontology care may increase. Gain skills for supporting the entire adult life span with the online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)—Adult Gerontology program from Florida A&M University (FAMU).

Our experienced faculty will help you learn the theory and practices applicable to adult gerontology primary care nurse practitioner roles. You’ll learn to provide patient-centered care for adults, completing courses focusing on disease prevention, clinical management, and promoting better health.
