Emphasizing interprofessional educational competencies, RMU’s Post-Masters/Post-Doctoral Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) Certificate Program prepares graduates to use their expert communication and leadership skills, employing clinical reasoning and evidence-based practice to ensure quality of care of patients experiencing mental illness.
Upon completion, graduates are eligible for national certification by the American Nurses Credentialing Center as a PMHNP.
"Obtaining my PMHNP certification was one of the best things that I have done. The option of attending class via specialized distance technology allowed me to complete the program from my own home while feeling present in the classroom. This program was taught by exceptional faculty who went above and beyond preparing me to integrate mental health assessment and treatment into my current practice. I am now the resource for our team in the provision of mental health treatment."
