Adult/Gerontological Acute Care Nurse Practitioner
The Adult Gerontological - Acute Care (AG-AC) track of the Master of Science in Nursing program prepares the students to be leaders in health care. The curriculum focuses on holistic patient care in the management of episodic and complex health issues in critically ill adolescents, young adults, adults and older/aging adults. Attention is given to clinical experiences in acute care/inpatient settings. Oakland University’s Nurse Practitioner Program is proud to educate students with experienced nurse practitioner faculty and students have opportunities for involvement with many organizations on campus, including the Michigan Council of Nurse Practitioners – Oakland Chapter. Oakland University School of Nursing is accredited through CCNE. Upon completion of all program requirements, graduates are prepared for certification through ANCC or AACN.
Admission to the AG-AC track at Oakland University occurs once a year, during the Fall semester. Admission to the program is highly competitive and priority is given to students who submit all materials by the deadline. Our desired applicants are self-directed learners, demonstrate superior communication and interpersonal skills, and have strong critical thinking skills. Qualified applicants will be selected for an interview with current Oakland University School of Nursing faculty.
Required coursework is based upon a gap analysis that compares prior MSN didactic and clinical experience with the AG-AC national certification requirements to determine the courses for the Plan of Study.
