Open house for nurse practitioner program set for Feb. 13

February 04, 2013

Penn State Mont Alto will host a free information session for the nurse practitioner (NP) program at 5 p.m. Feb. 13, in the Heritage Room in the Millstream Cafe.

The Nurse Practitioner option enables registered nurses (RNs) who hold a bachelor's degree in nursing to acquire advanced knowledge and clinical practice skills in direct care of individuals, families and aggregate populations in primary and/or acute care settings. On admission, students plan either a part-time or full-time program of study with an assigned adviser to meet the requirements for specialization as an adult gerontology primary care nurse practitioner (AGNP) or family nurse practitioner (FNP).

The NP program is a four-semester master’s level cohort at Penn State Mont Alto; space is limited. It is available to registered nurses who hold a bachelor’s degree in nursing. The program will prepare nurses for direct patient care, leadership roles in practice settings and nursing education.
