Your Practice, Expanded for the Greater Need.

Seattle University’s world-class College of Nursing offers a flexible certificate program to advance the scope of practice for working professional Nurse Practitioners with a strong passion for intensive care work. Upon receiving your certificate, you will be prepared to advance your practice in acute care environments including inpatient, emergency and critical care units. Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioners (AG-ACNP) make valuable contributions in urban centers as well as rural and resource-limited communities. 

Completion of the 15-month post-graduate certificate program enables primary care family nurse practitioners and adult-geriatric nurse practitioners to expand their current knowledge, increase their scope of practice and provide care to adults experiencing acute and unstable conditions. 

Designed to support working professionals.

  • On-campus courses occur once per month in a 3-day block on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
  • Students may complete many clinical hours in their home communities and work towards focused sub-specialties in Hospital Medicine/ICU, Cardiology, and Emergency Medicine/Trauma.

Our committed and passionate faculty deliver integrated and multi-disciplinary rigorous training to drive you on your mission to be there, where and when others need you the most.

Apply by November 15 for Winter 2023. No application fee required.
