Inclusive list of direct-entry PMHNP programs?Register Today!
- by blondielocks Jan 20Hi all,
I am beginning to narrow down my school applications. I am looking for direct-entry PMHNP programs. Is there a comprehensive list anywhere?
I have tried searching google, but to no avail. Maybe we could start one, and include details on if it's adult/family and if it offers DNP?
Here are the ones I know of:
Seattle University - MSN; adult (addictions focus)
OHSU (Portland, OR) - MSN or DNP; family
- Jan 25 by sarahdukieI applied to SU, Vanderbilt (family) and Columbia (family). I also looked at University of Chicago, Boston College, Northeastern. Each school varies in length, prereqs, etc, which is what shortened my list. Good luck!
- Jan 29 by GBeanaSI'm not exactly sure what you mean by direct-entry, but I've applied to the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Virginia. Both accept students directly upon graduation from undergrad in their PMHNP programs.

UCSF, Yale, U of Rochester, Seattle, Boston College, MGH, UIC, Northeastern, Vanderbilt, UPenn, Columbia, U of Southern Maine
UCSF is the most expensive as far as I can tell. Out of state tuition for 3 years is $120k+ -- when you take living expenses in SF into acount, that will be a very, very expensive investment. I know it's a good school, but damn. They really need to drop that tuition down!
- Apr 14 by myelinUCSF's tuition has gone up, but it is still below Columbia and Penn (Penn was 120k total costs just for the BSN when I applied). Do keep in mind that getting in-state residency is easy so after first year (and in the first year everyone has to pay the total tuition, including residents), you would have in-state tuition at UCSF.
