Seton Hall University College of Nursing now offers a combined Adult/Gerontological Nurse Practitioner program, which is designed to prepare nurses for the specific demands of working with the adults and the aged. The nurse practitioner curriculum meets the guidelines established by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculty.
This 48-credit, eight-semester program (3 summer courses) develops students’ skills in making independent clinical judgments, forming collaborative clinical relationships, providing evidence-based care and advocating for clients. The timeline can be modified to fit your individual needs.
Our nurse practitioner graduates not only become expert health care providers but also develop the leadership ability to operate effectively in today’s multidisciplinary health care environment.
Combining internet-based learning for the academic portions of the program alongside clinical practice components arranged at convenient locations, the M.S.N. Nurse Practitioner will appeal to ambitious working nurses who may be managing a number of work and home priorities.
Who Should Apply?
This program is ideal for those registered nurses holding a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree who want to specialize in adult/gerontological practice in a variety of healthcare settings.
Registered nurses who already hold a Master of Science in Nursing can apply to our DNP program or to our post-Master's certificate program.
