The Adult Nurse Practitioner Program (ANP) prepares advanced practice nurses as primary care providers to manage the health of individuals from 12 years of age through old age and their families. Emphasis is on health promotion, illness prevention, and management of acute and chronic illnesses. The ANP provides leadership and promotes research in the delivery of quality health care services for adults and their families. Graduates are prepared to be recognized as advanced practice nurses by the Texas Board of Nursing and to take the Adult Nurse Practitioner Certification Exam through the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
