PMHNP

Can anyone help me find PMHNP pograms in the souheast. Specifically ones that have mosly long distance classes and of course on site clinicals. There are none in florida as most are placed on moratoriums, only one I found is Vanderbilt. Thank you everyone.

Quick question first. If you want a distance education, why limit yourself to SE schools? After this answer it would be easier to give information.

Okay. glad you mentioned your perceptions because you have been mis-informed. Most distance programs (I had researched in detail nearly 100 during my undergrad) do not require more than an initial meeting to orient to the information delivery and teachers speech. My program does in fact have a clinical assessment on-site requirement but it is worth it to me for other reasons. I repeat, most do not require more than an initial meeting and many do not even require this. Don't go by the limited listings in the sponsered sites telling you about NP programs. Instead do a google search for "distance NP program" or something along those lines and expect to spend a large amount of time telling the "sorta" distance programs form the real ones. It is worth it. It opens a heck of alot more options for you. RODP programs comes to mind. The colleges involed in that colaborative do not require onsite meetings. UAB is the same I believe but some have spoke ill of their experience.

Good luck and start early. There are some programs that begin in the spring but most begin in the fall only.Still others start in the summer only. Several have due dates for applications one year out. Very little consistancy.

Thank you for your reply. I have been looking at UTennessee-which has a distance DNP in FNP/Psych and will try to get in before deadline. Their clinicals are in the home state. Besides that program I have not been able to find a fully long distance DNp in Psych with home clinicals. Thanks again.

p.s what is your school of choice?

Don't forget UT Knoxville as well. They still offer an MSN option.

Case Western. Very nice program but very expensive. I would highly recommend getting your masters first and waiting for the dnp programs to become more clinically relevent. Currently most DNP corricullums has little clinical aplication and a whole lot of quasi educational and leadership/management. Not worth it in my opinion unless thats the route you wish to take.

The University of South Alabama has a distance PMHNP program.

What's going on in Florida? Moratorium???

Yes, Florida right now has barely any PMHNP programs, dont really know what happened, USF and FIU both have moratoriums. I will try UA, thank you guys so much.

Is University of Alabama for real? If it is I am applying tomorrow:) PLease let me know guys if you have heard anything about this school and of course Ill do my diligent research as well:)

A friend of mine graduated with a post-masters certificate in PMHNP, so yeah, it's real! She was already a FNP.

UAB was an excellent school before you were born. :D

University of South Alabama does indeed have a PMHNP program. They will not admit you without 2 years psych experience. I've tried. :( They only require that you attend an orientation at the beginning of your clinical experience (1 time). Otherwise they require proctored finals during the clinical phase, which can be completed at a Sylvan Learning center.

Good luck!

p.s. The cost is about $344 per credit hour for about 48 hours, with other misc fees plus books. Quite reasonable if you ask me!

The U of Tenn PMHNP program is excellent but all on-ground except for one class, which is offered online.

RN007, I am waiting to hear back on my application for U of Tenn. I am nervous and excited. Any insight or advice about the program? Did you go full time or part time? I am a single mother of a toddler and am trying to figure out how to work, be a full time mommy, and go to school. How was the work load, clinicals, etc?

I just hope there will be none. There is really no need to have any PMHNP programs in Florida or Georgia. Both states do not not require that NPs practice within a specialty and NPs are not independent there. If they can't find PMHNP, they will grab PAs or FNPs. FNPs and PAs will take your jobs and salary.
