The College of Nursing and Professional Disciplines now offers its Family Psychiatric and Mental Health (PMH) Nurse Practitioner program via distance delivery. Students are online for the entire program, with the exception of up to one week per year in the fall when they will gather at the University of North Dakota campus. The Adult Psychiatric and Mental Health Clinical Nurse Specialist and Adult Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMH-NP) program will be phased out as of Fall 2012 with the graduation of remaining students in the track in 2012. Students graduating in 2012 are eligible to sit for the American Nurses Credentialing Center certification exam in Adult PMH-CNS or Adult PMH-NP.
The new Family Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner track has 57-59 required credits. Students may enroll for the full-time two year program, or part-time to complete the program in 3 years. The Post-Master's certificate programs may be taken over 2-3 years also. Students graduating in 2013 and thereafter will be eligible to sit for the American Nurses Credentialing Center certification exam in Family PMH-NP.
DISCLAIMER NOTE: The curriculum within the Psychiatric and Mental Health NP track is subject to change based on American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF), and National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists (NACNS) certification requirements. In particular, if the certification requirements change, curriculum/course alterations may need to be implemented.
