South College’s Master of Science in Nursing with Concentration in Family Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program is a flexible and affordable way to advance your career.
Innovative, challenging, and comprehensive, the MSN PMHNPs program further develops the critical thinking and analytical skills needed in today’s competitive and evolving healthcare environments. Our approach to education combines cutting-edge online coursework with hands-on clinical practice close to home. And best of all, our MSN PMHNP program is designed to accommodate the schedules of working nursing professionals.
PMHNP students will be able to tailor their learning to their long-term professional objectives through topic selection for course papers and projects and by arranging their own clinical sites for practicum components (must be approved by South College).
Graduates are eligible to write the national certification examination, which is currently offered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). The credential granted is PMHNP-BC.
There’s a high demand for nurse practitioners thanks to their extensive nursing background and ability to take on roles commonly filled by physicians.* Jobs for PMHNPs are expected to grow an astounding 31% between 2014-2024 according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s much faster than the average for other occupations.
