Hello..

I have applied for the FNP-PMHNP post Masters Cert.. but I’m confused about the board exam. If I’m already an FNP-BC, do I take the same PMHNP exam as someone who doesn’t already have an FNP. Thank you

Yes you do take the same exam. It's a different specialty certification and tests you on different materials. Once you become a PMHNP you will need to maintain both certs according to each cert's requirements.

are you an FNP who decided to get a certificate for PMHNP? Are you doing the program now? I'd love to hear your thoughts/experience since I'm thinking of doing the same. Thanks!
