Adult Health Nurse

Your online resource for Adult Health Nurse Education and Career Information. The adult health nurse is technically known as a nurse practitioner, and holds an MSN degree or Masters of Science in Nursing. These programs are designed to enhance the education covered by an RN and/or BSN program, focusing on clinical teaching skills, working independently, and management and leadership.

The adult health nurse caters specifically to adult patients and the elderly, sometimes offering home care or specialty services in assisted living facilities and nursing homes. Generally speaking, adult health nurse practitioners want to help patients in a hands-on format, and can do so without doctor's supervision if they choose. Of course, licensing exams required by state law must be passed, and previous experience is often required in this position.
