I went to the University of South Alabama for my PMHNP. We had to have at least 600 clinical hours total, with 45 of those in pediatrics (children 12 or younger), 45 hours of geropsych (adults 65 and older), and 45 hours in outpatient if our primary focus was inpatient (or vice versa). The remainder of our hours could be split up however we saw fit.
