Offered through Distance Education with On-Site Requirements
The Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Program prepares graduates to provide advanced practice nursing to adult-gerontology patients (young adults, older adults, and frail elderly) with complex acute and/or chronic health conditions and to develop effective solutions for patient, population and system needs.The program equips students with knowledge, skills, and attitudes to manage patient care across the full spectrum of acuity and healthcare settings.
Graduate Program Outcomes
* Clinical Practice Portfolio - Registered Nurse applicants to a master's program with a non-nursing bachelor's degree are required to submit a clinical practice portfolio to be evaluated for baccalaureate-level nursing competencies upon conditional admission once they have been admitted to a program. A non-refundable fee of $300 is required for the portfolio evaluation. Upon successful completion of the portfolio, the student will be admitted to the program. If the portfolio does not meet academic standards, the student cannot progress in the program.
The Clinical Practice Portfolio is only required for those Registered Nurse applicants with a non-nursing bachelor's degree who have been offered conditional acceptance.
Additional Requirements Upon Admission
Transcripts from foreign institutions must be evaluated for transfer equivalency credits by an accredited evaluation service, such as the World Education Services (WES) http://www.wes.org
Graduates from this program will be eligible for certification and registration as a nurse practioner by New York State Education Department and are also eligible for National Certification as an Adult/Gerontology-Acute Care NP.
The Stony Brook University School of Nursing reserves the right to change admission and program criteria to meet prevailing accreditation, regulatory and registration requirements.
Process for Clinical Experiences
The Office of Clinical Placements facilitates the processing of clinical placement requests and contracts for all clinical affiliations within the baccalaureate, master’s, advanced certificate, and DNP programs. The office works collaboratively with faculty to secure clinical placement sites for students. Once a suitable site is identified, students submit a clinical placement request form for processing. The office maintains electronic data systems and records related to students, clinical placement sites, clinical affiliation agreements, clinical contracts and preceptors. Central to the clinical placement process for all programs is the establishment of a clinical affiliation agreement and clinical contract which is executed between SUNY and the clinical site. Upon final execution of a clinical affiliation agreement, SUNY procures and provides the site with a certificate of insurance or related protection evidencing the required insurance coverage. The provisions of a clinical affiliation agreement and clinical contract include the responsibilities and mutual terms that are agreed upon during the life of the agreement.
