Seton Hall University

Program Details

The online AGNP program from Seton Hall University, the MSN in Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner Primary Care degree, builds the skills needed to serve adolescent to elderly populations as a primary care provider.  Students prepare for the AANPCP exam and graduate ready to provide evidence-based compassionate care and improve their communities. 

The Primary Care track focuses on disease prevention, health promotion and the management of patients with multisystem health problems.  Courses prepare you to analyze health histories, physical exams, and developmental and behavioral assessments in order to manage a patient’s health and illness.  In addition to providing advanced nursing care to patients, you will also examine ways to communicate diagnoses and therapeutic plans and to collaborate with other health professionals and patients and their families to create the best possible outcomes.  Students prepare for practice in a primary care office, occupational health clinic or university health clinic.  

As students complete this geriatric nurse practitioner program online, they will complete a values-based curriculum that prepares them to act as servant leaders in a global society.  While learning, you will benefit from an immersive education with hands-on faculty who act as mentors and offer career support.
