Since this is in the DNP forum, I guess you want a DNP/FNP/PMHNP.
I Googled this for you:
Im sorry. I didn't realize this was a dnp forum. I was actually looking for a master's program like this. I do appreciate you giving me this info though. Thanks

I saw that too but you have to go to TN for three weeks every semester. It seems like there are no dual FNP/PMHNP programs. I'm looking too, but coming up with nothing.

I'm curious why you'd want to do both at once rather than getting one, starting to practice, making money and gaining valuable experience while later completing a post-masters certificate. Combining them wouldn't cut out any clinical hours or courses so I'm not sure what the advantage would be.
Well they have dual certs/programs for other NP interest. I'm not trying to "cut out" any courses or clinical hours. I would like to do it with FNP & PMHNP.
But wouldn't it take longer to complete both together right? You could finish one and get licensed in 2 years but I can't imagine you could do both in that time frame so that is what doesn't make sense to me. Why not get one and work while getting the second? My post masters FNP was only a year and I worked full time throughout.

The doctorates listed above for dual FNP/PMHNP takes 3 years, full time.

My FNP program is a mental health program unto itself....

I am an ANP who is going back for a post master's PMHNP. Hope it is worth it.

I believe Vanderbilt, also in TN, has an on campus FNP/PMHNP program. Swell.
I side with Jules. You're losing money every year you're in school. That being said, you could become a PMHNP, get a nice income, work negotiable hours, and then do FNP in your spare time. You could do this in reverse order too, but I think you'll make more as a PMHNP across the board so it's most profitable to get that cert as quickly as possible. I envy you and wish I had the gumption to pursue the FNP. I'd really like to tend to a smattering of primary care stuff, but crotches and crying babies are a great repellent.
