The Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) Post-Master’s certificate program prepares nurses to provide effective care for patients with complex psychiatric and physical health needs. PMHNPs work with individuals and families to develop a diagnosis and then design, implement and monitor a plan of care. Responsibilities can also include prescribing medication and administering psychotherapy.

This program is offered fully online, but requires students to come to UC College of Nursing campus during the program to network with cohort members, meet faculty and personally experience the high-quality culture and competence of the University of Cincinnati.
