Curriculum & Learning Outcomes
As the U.S. population ages, this career is in high demand. According to the U.S. Census, by 2050 more than 20% of Americans—88 million people—will be over age 65, increasing the need for Adult-Geriatric Nurse Practitioners. Adult-gerontology nurse practitioners manage acute and chronic health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, COPD, and asthma. Nurse Practitioners are committed to promoting health within the community and have a passion for working with at-risk and culturally diverse adult and elderly populations.
