Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioners (PMHNPs) provide assessment, diagnoses, and treatment to individuals or families with psychiatric disorders while also identifying related risk factors. PMHNPs are crucially aligned to contribute to policy development, improvement in quality of care, practice evaluation, and healthcare reform.
MSN-PMHNP students are able to tailor their learning to their long-term professional objectives through topic selection for course papers and projects, and by recommending their own clinical sites for practicum components (must be approved by South College).
