Within the Department of Biobehavioral Nursing Science there are two areas of concentration: (1) Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AG-ACNP) and (2) Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AG-PCNP). The BNS Department has Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs in these areas of concentration and is one of three departments in the UIC College of Nursing. Clinical track faculty in the BNS Department advance scholarship on multilevel determinants of health (psychosocial, behavioral, environmental, and systems) and translate this scholarship into practice, care delivery, and policy to improve the health of individuals, families, communities, organizations and populations. Student learning is facilitated by cutting edge educational approaches, e.g. flipped classroom, simulation learning, online learning, as well as traditional face-to-face classrooms. 

The AG-ACNP program is designed to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to provide advanced nursing care in complex patient situations. The AG-ACNP manages acute, critical and complex chronic illness across the adult lifespan from young adults (including late adolescents) to adults and older adults and across a continuum of care settings.

The AG-PCNP program at UIC prepares graduates to provide primary care across the adult lifespan from young adults (including late adolescents) to adults and older adults. An AG-PCNP provides advanced practice, patient-centered care services across the continuum of care from wellness to illness, including preventive, chronic and acute care.

We value diversity and demonstrate this commitment through a variety of initiatives. We encourage individuals from historically under-represented groups to apply. Visit our website to learn more about us at:
