Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (Post Master's Certificate)
Post Master’s Certificate: Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
HPU’s online Post Masters Certificate in Psychiatric Mental Health allows nurses with a master’s or doctorate degree in nursing, with a Nurse Practitioner credential in another field of Nursing from an accredited school, to sit for the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) exam required for licensure as a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner.
By taking a series of specialized courses that explore the treatment of complex mental health needs with a view toward recovery-focused interventions, students can re-tool for the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner designation without completing another degree.
Students must meet the HPU graduate nursing admissions guidelines and apply in the same manner.
