What can you do with an MSN AGNP degree?
U.S. citizens over the age 65 are projected to reach nearly 77 million by 2034. Each of these people requires individual, specialized care to help treat and prevent age-related illnesses, such as metabolic syndrome, arthritis, or memory loss. With an adult geriatric nurse practitioner program, you can help adult and geriatric patients receive the specialized health services they need. Your responsibilities may include:
Diagnosing and treating illness
Counseling patients on maintaining a healthy lifestyle
Coordinating care provided by specialty health care providers
Providing preventive care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, and immunization and screening tests
Collaborating with other health care providers
Helping adult patients maintain and promote healthy lifestyles
Advocating for underserved individuals and groups
While adult geriatrics is a focused area of the NP role, there are opportunities to specialize even further with additional education and training. Some areas of specialization include:
Integrated complementary health care
Where do adult geriatric nurse practitioners work?
Like all nurse practitioners, AGNPs are in high demand due to changes in health care law, a rapidly aging population, and higher standards in primary care. Adult geriatric nurse practitioners are especially needed due to their specialized skill set. This means that AGNPs have many opportunities and are able to apply their skills in a variety of work settings, including:
Private medical practices
Home care agencies
Assisted living facilities
Hospice/palliative care centers
