‌The York College Graduate Programs in Nursing are proud to announce that the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing has granted approval to amend our Adult Nurse Practitioner track to a new Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner Primary Care track.

As a result of the Consensus Model for APRN Regulation (July 2008), all adult nurse practitioner programs are making a transition to adult-gerontology nurse practitioner programs. As of 2013, the national certifying organizations, The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the American Nurses Credentialing Center will have a new adult-gerontology exam available.  The adult nurse practitioner exam will be retired by 2014-2015.
