Hello! I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this question, but I've spent a couple of weeks looking into BSN-DNP programs as I wish to further my education once I graduate and hopefully become a PMHNP. However, I've had a hard time finding programs that are not online. I'd really prefer an onsite program and was wondering if anyone knew of any universities that offered a doctorates degree in PMHNP and that was onsite?

Sorry I can't research this more thoroughly. My husband was looking for a PMHNP program about a year ago and I think University of Pennsylvania is the one he talked about as one that was only available on site. Big advantage is it is very accelerated running only 14 months; probably the fastest in the nation. It is not a DNP program but with that speed you would be able to complete an MSN to DNP in another year or two at most. UPenn is extremely well regarded for their nursing programs so they might be more selective than other programs but you would have an excellent education.

Thank you for your reply! I do have Upenn down as a possible option. the biggest thing holding me back is the cost as I think it was about $85,000 for the MSN alone which is quite steep. I'm honestly still very torn about what to do in terms of loans. I have no student loans from my BSN but it's hard to make that sort of commitment.
