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.

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