The graduate program offers the following concentrations: Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, Family Nurse Practitioner, Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner, Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. In addition, the graduate program offers a post-Master’s certificate option in each of the Nurse Practitioner concentrations.
