If you’re a registered nurse with a master’s degree who is ready to expand your professional skills, consider earning an Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Certificate at Purdue Global. Gain expertise in the management of acutely ill medical, surgical, and critical care adult patient populations and working with an interprofessional direct care team. As a student in the certificate program, you will participate in a clinical practice experience designed to provide you with an opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge in a real-world setting.*
*Please note that most states require nurses to be nationally certified in order to obtain licensure as a nurse practitioner. Students are responsible for determining whether they will be eligible for state Board of Nursing approval and certification as a nurse practitioner or advanced practice nurse in their state. Students can obtain additional information from their state’s Board of Nursing, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (AACN), and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP).
A BSN degree is required.
