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. The Post-Master’s Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Program is not eligible for financial aid or financial assistance.
Yes. The vast majority of our students work throughout their time in their academic program. It is important to assess course load and financial aid to understand how to balance school and working.
If possible, students may cut down on their work hours during a clinical portion of a program.
Most of our programs do not require onsite visits, but there are a couple of exceptions.
If you are interested in pursuing the Master of Science in Nursing-Nurse Midwifery, you will have two skills intensives that take place on campus. The Post-Master’s Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program has one onsite visit that occurs during the first semester of psych-specific classes.
Programs can be completed full-time or part-time. Many programs are set up to be part-time, with most containing fewer than 10 credit hours in any given semester. We know you have a lot going on, so want to make sure that school can fit into your schedule. Note: There are some exceptions.
The University of Cincinnati is one of the first institutions to offer online courses. Innovation in education is at the forefront of what we do. We have expanded the convenience and quality of our online learning to online degree programs. Today, we offer nearly 100 degrees from undergraduate to doctoral programs.
