Extensive coursework and practicum will focus on the full spectrum of the young adult-older adult care. It will provide the opportunity to focus on the differing and unique developmental, life-stage needs that impact the patient's care across the entire adult age spectrum, particularly those with acute care needs. The Adult-Gerontology Acute Care NP can diagnose, treat illness, conduct physical examinations, order diagnostic tests and prescribe medications under the delegation from a supervising physician within a defined scope of practice, with appropriate referral to specialists when indicated.
