Stony Brook Psychiatric NP -online

  1. 0
    I hesitated with starting an exclusive online PMHNP program but I am thrilled to start such a dynamic, flexible program. We are a military family stationed overseas and the School of Nursing has bent over backwards to help arrange all our meetings (traditionally done at the University) via Skype. I'm in the 2012 Psych NP cohort slated to graduate 2015 and would be happy to answer any questions about the program, process, etc for anyone interested and would love to virtually introduce myself to my classmates. All the best!

    Hi there! Not sure how much insight I can provide as I just started the program but I can share my experience thus far Organized, affordable (a bit over $700 a credit for out of state). I believe they offer a post- masters certificate for a number of specialties. So far...two thumbs up. I enjoy the course I'm taking and the professor is really accommodating. All the best in your search. There are a number of online post-master's programs however, you are required to find your own clinical experiences which surprisingly can be a challenge. All the best in your search.

    Make sure the school is accredited. Many schools aren't and accreditation is required by certification agencies. Certification is required to get prescriptive authority, at least in my state. Also, in practice, many insurance companies won't pay for your services if you didn't graduate from an accredited program.

    Thank you for sharing your experience with us, KeriMarie. Does the school assist students in finding preceptors?

    I just started my second year in the Adult NP program at Stony Brook and I will start clinicals in the Fall and you have to find your own preceptors. There is a clinical placement office that helps with setting up contracts/agreements and they have a list of where students have gone in the past that can be used to find a preceptor, but it's up to you to find a preceptor. The placement office appears to help you only if you absolutely can't find a preceptor.
