Certificate & Licensure Programs

Post Master's Mental Health Nurse Practitioner

Nurses with a master of science in nursing (MSN) degree may seek the post-master’s PMHNP certificate to be eligible for ANCC certification. Students who successfully complete a counseling course (MCP 620), a series of three practica, and a 0-credit orientation complete this certification in three to four semesters. Students must have successfully completed courses in advanced practice roles, advanced pathophysiology, advanced physical assessment, and advanced pharmacology in their previous MSN curriculum; if not, those courses must be taken as well to be eligible for certification. A transcript evaluation of the student’s master’s program determines which courses are needed. The program requires at least 600 practicum hours.

Note: Readiness for initial advanced practice nurse prescriber application requires a clinical pharmacology course within the three preceding years
