Hello all! 

I'm an FNP and applied to the JHU SON PMHNP Post-Master's PMHNP cert program for Fall 2023. After an intense 10 minute search, I couldn't find any threads started for JHU SON PMHNP Cert Fall 2023 applicants to gather, encourage, console and of course share info.   Let's chat!

Hi was scrolling through and I saw you mentioned John Hopkins pmhnp program starting fall 2023.  I am also interested in this program as well do you might if I ask how is the program so far and can you update the site as you transition?

Specializes in FNP.

Hi FNP to PMHNP,

I love this program so far. The professors are surprisingly compassionate. I knew they would be brilliant so that wasn't an issue that crossed my mind as well as the quality and intensity of this program. This program is like drinking water from a fire hydrant but if there's ever an issue, the professors make it known that they care and will work with you to come up with a remediation plan if need be. I found a small group of classmates and we text each other and encourage each other daily.  Of course not everything is perfect but I must say I'm surprised that despite all the work how happy I am in this program. It is high yield information taught by NPs, an MD and a Psychologist within their own expertise. It's so refreshing. another benefit is that if you work, you set up your schedule on when to complete items within the due date. They should have me in the commercials for this glowing review haha.

 

I wish you luck wherever you go. I'll try to update my thoughts at the end of the semester if I remember or receive a reminder message. 

 

Good luck!

Thank you for responding.  I've noticed there are 4 classes in the first semester and it's freaking be out.  I am so anxious because I don't know where to start or prepare myself for the program.

My biggest regret was not reviewing some of the material (even though I bought dozens of books regarding Psych) months in advance of the program with the goal to prepare 🤣.

 

 I would recommend reviewing the the 1.) ANA's PMHNP Review and resource manual and if you're really ambitious getting started with the corresponding 2.) APEA PMHNP questions a little at a time. like 1 question a day in tutor mode just for learning. other than that enjoy your time because the reading is ALOT! but if I did these things it probably wouldn't have been so intense. another two books I wish I read the Spring and Summer before I started would be Dr. Jonathan Heldt's 3.) "Memorable Psychopharmacology" and 4.) "Memorable Psychiatry" the corresponding videos are excellent. again, I wouldn't drive myself insane to "prepare" but reading a little bit each week will help get you on the ground running. I cannot emphasize enough how amazing the professors are and they tie this information well. 

good luck!

Hoping you could answer the following:

Do they offer clinical placements or are you on your own?

Cost of program?
