This advanced practice nursing track prepares nurses to practice in a wide variety of settings including medical and surgical critical care, acute care, and specialty clinics. The Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Clinical Nurse Specialist (AG-ACCNS) focuses on the care and/or management of young adults, adults, elderly, and frail elderly patients over a continuum of wellness, acute illness and chronic illness.

In the first practicum the AG-ACCNS track emphasizes the acquisition of advanced specialized knowledge and skills while the second “synthesis” practicum focuses on the role of the CNS. Emphasis is placed on the use of evidence-based clinical knowledge and skills to teach, conduct research, and act as a change agent in the role of a clinical nurse specialist.
