Nursing Career Outcomes
Due to factors such as the Affordable Care Act and the massive number of baby boomers approaching retirement age, the need for dedicated health care professionals is at an all-time high. Nursing@Georgetown is designed to prepare advanced practice nurses to take on leadership roles and become the agents of change for improved health and health care in their communities.
Each of our specializations delivers courses that are focused on providing experiential learning, ensuring our graduates have the skills and knowledge to advance their nursing careers.
Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AG-ACNP)
The AG-ACNP specialization offers a unique opportunity to gain experience for two critical nursing positions. While ACNPs provide more hands-on management and treatment of acute and critical-care patients, Clinical Nurse Specialists are called upon to strategize and implement treatment plans for best patient outcomes.
The AG-ACNP specialization opens the doors to new career opportunities by emphasizing the roles of clinical expert, practitioner, consultant, educator, researcher, and leader.
Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP)
Family nurse practitioners play a lead role in providing health services for a variety of patients across the lifespan. FNPs take a holistic approach to managing the care of families that includes health promotion, disease prevention, assessment, and management of common acute and chronic illnesses.
As educators in one of the most in-demand careers in the nation, we are dedicated to helping our nurse practitioner students not only earn their certifications, but also find rewarding FNP careers.
Nurse-Midwifery/Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner
By entering a career in nurse-midwifery or as a women’s health nurse practitioner, you will have the opportunity to provide prenatal, delivery, and postpartum care for women, as well as provide care for women throughout their lifespan. Many nurses specializing in this area of medicine act as primary care providers for their female patients.
As nurse-midwives are among the many nursing roles that are now in high demand in the United States, this career is an opportunity to take on a profoundly fulfilling role in the health care field.
