Mental Health Nursing University
The Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nurse.
Advanced practice psychiatric nurses provide primary mental health care to patients seeking mental health services in a wide range of settings. This includes the assessment, diagnosis, and management of mental health problems and psychiatric disorders. The program allows for a primary focus on either children or adults.
Advanced practice psychiatric nurses work in a variety of settings, including inpatient, emergency and community-based mental health services. They also provide services in settings such as primary care clinics, forensic settings, schools, substance abuse centers and recovery programs.
Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners (PMHNPs) provide a full range of primary mental health care services including biopsychosocial assessment and diagnosis of patients with mental illness. Treatment modalities include both medication and psychotherapeutic management.
Note: the Clinical Nurse Specialist option is no longer offered in this MS Specialty Area.
The advanced practice psychiatric nursing program prepares students to respond to the mental health needs of persons across the lifespan. Students may select to complete their clinical residency with a specific age group, such as children and youth, or clinical population.
Coursework includes foundational coursework for all advanced practice roles, including comprehensive health assessment, pathophysiology, pharmacology and health promotion. Psychiatric nursing coursework includes psychiatric assessment and symptom management; psychopharmacology; individual, group and family therapy; and human development.
There are also opportunities for post-master's study leading to Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner certification for those who are already graduate-prepared nurses.
Preparing for certification will generally require four to six quarters of study depending on the applicant's background.
