Just inquired about their BSN to MSN Psych Mental Health NP program. It looks promising, it is accredited and appears to be sound and solid curriculum and affordable. Downside it is adult only program not family/adult/pediatrics. Anyone in their program? I really want to hear from those who are experiencing the academics and organization first hand. Please let me know your experience and opinion.

If their program is not "lifespan" (children through geri) now, I'm sure they'll be changing it soon. The ANCC is "retiring" the adult psych NP credential this year, and the only psych advanced practice credential going forward is going to be the "family" (as in full lifespan, like FNPs) psych NP.

There's not much point in getting into the program if it's not going to be preparing you for board certification when you finish.

I am going to clarify about the family versus adult. One webpage has info about it being adult only and another information page on the website states it is family. Another possible downside is that students are responsible for their preceptors. There are no PMHNP programs in my state so I have to go the online route and not be drowning in student loans.
