Inclusive list of direct-entry PMHNP programs?

  1. Hi 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

    I 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!

    I'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, and U of Rochester also have programs.

    Here's what I found:

    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!

    UCSF'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.
