Psychiatric–Mental Health Nurse Practitioner

The Post-Master’s Psychiatric–Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) Certificate option is intended for the master’s or doctoral-prepared advanced practice nurse who desires formal education and clinical training as a Psychiatric–Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.

The Post-Master’s Certificate option builds on the existing curriculum of the Psychiatric–Mental Health Nurse Practitioner specialty. The plan of study includes all the required courses currently offered in the PMHNP specialty and is determined through completion of a gap analysis and review of the incoming student’s graduate academic record. A plan of study is available on the YSN website.

The Post-Master’s Psychiatric–Mental Health Certificate option is intended to prepare students to apply for certification as a psychiatric–mental health nurse practitioner with a life-span focus through the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
