Doctor of Nursing Practice in Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (post-BSN)

This program option prepares registered nurses as advanced practice leaders and interprofessional team members providing care for acute and critically ill patients and their families. Acute care NPs attend to adolescents and adults across the continuum of care, including in urgent care centers, critical care units and inpatient medical-surgical or specialty units. Acute care offers a high-intensity environment that requires the fast-paced critical thinking skills you will develop in this program.

Clinical placements will be arranged by the program director and will take place in Northern Virginia, Maryland or Washington, D.C. At this time, this program option is only available to applicants who are able to do their clinical rotations in those areas.
