Master of Science in Nursing – Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner

Program Type: Major
Program Level: Graduate
Department: Graduate Nursing Programs

CARING FOR PATIENTS AND PEOPLE

As a psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner, you’ll be a clinical expert providing mental health care to individuals, families, groups, and communities. You’ll be trained to use an evidence-based approach to diagnose and treat a variety of mental health conditions through the provision of pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy. The focus of Mount Marty’s PMHNP program is to provide the academic knowledge and clinical skills necessary to provide mental health promotion, disease prevention, assessment, and management of psychiatric illness. You’ll learn to not only provide advanced patient care but to also care for your patients with compassion, understanding, and a spirit of service—as part of our Catholic Benedictine values. And clinical experiences in rural and underserved settings mean you’ll be able to provide primary care to those who need it most. 

MMU NURSING MISSION 

The mission of the Mount Marty University Nursing Programs is to provide students with an integrated education in a Catholic, Benedictine, liberal arts setting and to promote personal character development, holistic professional nursing expertise, and community service involvement. 

  • Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner: Take your practice to the next level with a Master of Science degree in nursing and provide primary care for people of different backgrounds.
  • Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Post-Graduate Certificate: If you already have a master's degree in nursing, you are eligible for a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner certificate. After applying, we’ll assess your transcripts, coursework, clinical hours and grades, and course waivers may be granted. At the end of the program, you’ll be eligible for the psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner certification.
  • Skills you’ll use. After completing the six-semester accredited program, you’ll be eligible to take the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) certification examination to gain licensure as a psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner.
  • Convenient online and face-to- face courses. Coursework is both online and on campus. Most students enroll in the program while still working in their field.
