I am currently an ICU nurse getting my BSN and was looking at different areas of NP. I love acute care and also love the geriatric population. IF I were to do this would this be a double specialization where I would have to take two certification tests for? Was wondering if there are any Geriatric NP's out there?

No. Most schools have followed the AANC recommendation and now have programs in acute-geriatric primary care and acute-geriatric acute care. The latter would be perfect for you.
