This concentration is provided in collaboration with Shenandoah University to prepare nurses for advanced practice in psychiatric mental health nursing. Nurses will be qualified to work in hospitals, clinics, and mental health facilities. The psychiatric courses offered by Shenandoah University will qualify students to sit for the Psychiatric Mental Health Clinical Nurse Specialist (PMHCNS) and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) exams.
Note: Not all Shenandoah University psychiatric mental health course work is online. Students will be required to attend two (2) long weekends per semester for the Individual Therapy course and Group/Family course. Also, students are required to attend in person on campus a 1-day orientation.
