Adult Gerontology

It’s a long journey from adolescence to old age, and one that is made immeasurably better by skilled, compassionate nursing.

In Adult Gerontology, we train nurses to care for adults as they progress through their lives, so that they are ready to act during periods of health or sickness.

Our Programs

We combine top-tier research and with clinical practice that spans a lifetime, from the maintenance of youth to the managed care of senescence. As with all of Penn Nursing’s academic programs, clinical experiences and preceptors for our students are all arranged and coordinated by the School.

Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner

Nurses in the Acute Care NP program work with patients throughout their adult lives and focus on providing treatment during medical emergencies and acute conditions.

Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner

Our Primary Care NP program trains you to provide care to adults in both sickness and in health.

Adult Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist

In our CNS program, you’ll learn to improve health outcomes by working through three areas of influence: the patients themselves, the nurses providing the care, and the health system under which the care is delivered.
