Program Overview

The Post-Master's Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP) Certificate program prepares graduates to provide culturally sensitive, comprehensive care for adults with common episodic and chronic health problems. The AGACNP assumes responsibility for promoting, maintaining, and restoring health to adults who are chronically, acutely or critically ill. The AGACNP is an online track that requires occasional travel to the Lubbock campus.

Upon completion of course requirements, graduates of the Masters and Post-Master's Programs are eligible to sit for the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Certification Exam, or the American Association of Critical Care Nurses’ Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Certification Exam.
