The Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Initiative is a collaborative arrangement between the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program and other schools of nursing.
Through this arrangement, the graduate nursing student attending one of the collaborating schools will receive a certificate in Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner after completing the 29 credit hours of graduate Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner courses from Shenandoah University as they are completing their graduate degree from their home school of nursing. Upon successful completion of this program, the student will receive a graduate degree from their home nursing school and a Certificate in Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner from Shenandoah University. The graduate will then be eligible to sit for the American Nurses Credentialing Certification PMHNP Examination.
Admission to this option requires successful admission to the school of nursing at the home university. At the present time, Shenandoah University has collaborative agreements with the following schools of nursing for Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing:
