The Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) Certificate prepares graduates for advanced practice registered nurse roles by developing knowledge and skills in areas of mental health promotion, mental illness prevention, assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and patient education. The PMHNP certificate program will equip the advanced practice nurse (APN) with the expertise and skills to diagnose and treat individuals with psychiatric and mental health disorders as well as work with a team of professionals in a collaborative approach.

The PMHNP is able to practice using knowledge and skills mastered in the program to deliver care, develop health care systems, or educate individuals, families, and communities.
