For nurses, compassion, empathy and critical thinking go without saying. University of Cincinnati nurses build on these traits to become leaders in whichever setting they choose to work.

For over a decade, we have pioneered online nursing education across the nation. Our mission is to ensure our graduates are empowered to think critically; advocate for patients and the profession; and explore, generate and apply nursing knowledge in any setting.

All of our nursing degree and certificate programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

What is Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner?

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.
