  • June 09: UDM to hold information sessions for in-demand health career programs

    Sunday June 09, 2024

    A photo of healthcare professionals gathering in a circle to discuss something.ϲʲͼ’s online Adult-Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist (AGCNS) and Post-Master’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs will host information sessions this June and July.

    Information sessions for the AGCNS program are scheduled for Thursday, June 20 and Thursday, July 25, at 1p.m., whilePost-Master’s DNP program information sessions are scheduled for Thursday, June 13, at 6 p.m.; June 27, at 1 p.m.; and Tuesday, July 9, at 6:30 p.m.

    The AGCNS program gives graduate degree-seeking students the transformational experience of becoming an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) in the role of the Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS). This program also provides an easy pathway to complete a student’s remaining DNP program requirements.

    CNS professionals help change the trajectory of care for populations of patientsto exceptional outcomes by prescribing advanced, compassionate, holistic care to patients/family caregivers. In addition, CNS professionals receive advanced training and education to make nursing and medical diagnoses. These highly trained APRNs also prescribe pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical care options while assessing the nursing environment and bringing best protocols to the bedside.

    Coursework for the AGCNS program is 100% online and conducted asynchronously through active engagement with faculty. This program equips students with the knowledge they need to be independent clinicians and to practice across clinical settings. Students are trained to be a generalist AGCNS overall, and skills will merge with their specialty or setting of choice in their CNS career.

    The program is also distinctively different from others because it incorporates several doctoral level courses, which allow students who complete AGCNS requirements to finish their doctoral work now or at a future time. This aspect of the program is delivered through a blend of asynchronous and synchronous learning, which culminates with a DNP project.

    The Post-Master’s DNP welcomes master’s prepared certified APRNs in the clinical specialties of nurse anesthetist, nurse practitioner, nurse midwife, and CNS. Additionally, MSN-prepared nurses in specialty areas such as nurse administration, executive leadership, and nursing informatics are also encouraged to apply to the program. The online program builds upon a student’s current skills to become effective leaders in healthcare as they work to improve the health outcomes of patients. The DNP represents the highest level of clinical nursing competence—students gain in-depth knowledge of nursing, biophysical, psychosocial, analytical, and organizational sciences. Using sophisticated informatics and decision-making technology, they develop collaborative strategies to optimize the health of individuals, families, communities, and UDM’s faculty and student mentoring approach, flexibility in clinical experiences, and affordable tuition makes this Post-Master’s DNP a unique experience.
