Columbia University School of Nursing Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Program is designed to prepare advanced practice nurses to deliver primary health care to all persons across the adult lifespan from adolescence (beginning at age 13) through end of life. Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (NP) students are provided with the most innovative, state-of-the-art immersion into advanced practice nursing in order to confidently contribute to the immediate and future health care needs of our most rapidly growing and at-risk populations, including adolescent health and geriatric care. Additionally, the value-added focus on adolescent and geriatric health care, palliative and end-of-life care, and the integration of primary and mental health care ensures that the Columbia Nursing Adult-Gerontology NP graduate will have the knowledge, insight, skills, and experience to provide high quality, well-informed, evidenced-base care to the broadest range of patients in any primary care or specialized clinical setting. Using a well-balanced combination of didactic classroom instruction, experiential clinical seminars, and advanced clinical practica in diverse settings, Columbia Adult-Gerontology NP students learn master and integrate their clinical practice with training in nursing leadership, clinical research, quality improvement, nursing informatics, and health and social policy.
