The Midwestern Advantage
Midwestern University's investment in education, faculty, research, facilities, and clinical training translates into our students being "Day One Ready.”
This graduate nursing degree educates baccalaureate-prepared registered nurses to assess, diagnose and manage acute, chronic, and complex health needs of individuals through adolescence (age 13 and older), adulthood, and end of life as primary care providers in an interprofessional healthcare system.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the geriatric population is expected to outnumber children by the year 2035.
Nurse practitioners with a focus on adult-gerontology primary care have an earning potential of $120,480 - $163,350 per year (variance is based on region/experience and area of specialty). (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics)
Less than 8% of nurse practitioners are trained in adult-gerontology primary care. This need continues to increase with the aging population in the U.S.
At Midwestern University, we prioritize research to advance knowledge and offer students enhanced learning opportunities, fostering close collaboration with faculty researchers and peers on innovative projects.
