Care for an Aging Population
Shenandoah University’s Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Certificate is designed to provide nurses with master’s degrees and doctorates with the necessary knowledge, skills, values, meanings, and experiences to assume the role of an AGNP in a variety of clinical settings.
The Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Certificate, offered at the Inova Center for Personalized Health, located just outside the Beltway on Gallows Road in Fairfax County, Virginia, focuses on the health care issues affecting aging and elderly populations. Certificate courses cover geriatric mental health theory, end-of-life transition and primary care of geriatrics.
Shenandoah University is excited to introduce this new program for Fall 2018.
Program pending approval from the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC)
