Advanced Graduate Certificate in Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP)

Estados Unidos


¿Qué aprenderé?

The Post- Master’s Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) certificate program prepares those with a Master’s of Science in Nursing to care for individuals and families with behavioral and mental problems. The program has two tracks: 1) for those who are not nationally certified and licensed as an APRN, and 2) for those who are nationally certified and licensed as an APRN.

This advanced practice role prepares graduates to assess, diagnose, intervene (e.g. psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy), and provide follow-up to facilitate ongoing levels of wellness. The PMHNP is prepared to provide psychiatric and mental health care in a variety of treatment settings (e.g. hospitals, jails, home care, and outpatient clinics) and participate with other members of the health care team. With a shortage of mental health professionals and increasing demand for expert mental health care in rural health settings, the PMHNPs scope of practice brings critically relevant skills needed to care for persons experiencing the full range of psychiatric and mental health problems.
