Program Overview

The DNP-Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (DNP-AGACNP) concentration offers education to become board-eligible as an Adult Geriatric Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP). This concentration prepares nurses to provide advanced patient-family centered care in settings with acute and/or chronically ill patients across the adult lifespan. Committed to addressing the health care needs of adults who are acutely and critically ill, this program is designed to prepare nurses to provide the “5 Cs”: coordinated care, collaborative care, comprehensive care, consistent care, and cost-effective care. Full-time and part-time schedules are available. The program is approved by the Georgia Board of Regents as a web-based program with greater than 50 percent of the program taught online. Cohort locations are on our Augusta and Athens campuses.
