    ANCC Frustrations

    You are correct. The dean of the graduate nursing program even sent them a letter stating that I had completed all requirements for the PMHNP certificate. It didn’t help. So, I’m stuck waiting until Spring to resume my last DNP course/project so I can hopefully be done with the whole thing!

    ANCC Frustrations

    From what I understand, it is not an option at my school to convert a student to the Post-Master’s Certificate Program. The assistant dean said they two completely separate programs. There were some staffing changes at the school of nursing and I believe that they basically just made a mistake when they indicated that I could be licensed as an PMHNP after I completed the didactic and clinical component. I was told that since I was already an FNP with a MSN, this would be allowed. I am just hoping that I will still be able to work in the position I was offered as an FNP until my certification is released.

    Actually, I do have a degree, a Master’s in nursing that I completed with my FNP in 2011. All of the required PMHNP courses have been completed and they do have a copy of my MSN transcript as well.

    ANCC Frustrations

    I have been an FNP since 2011 and am now enrolled in a DNP/PMHNP program. I completed all of the PMHNP didactic and clinical work in May 2020. I passed PMHNP boards September 1, 2020. I am one class away from completing my DNP (final portion of project) and was supposed to graduate in December, however I lost my job due to COVID (and therefore my project site) on September 29. The DNP program decided that it would be best for me to withdraw from the final class and complete it in the Spring. ANCC is refusing to release my PMHNP certification because my transcript does not have a final graduation date. It took 3 weeks to even get them to respond to my questions, and I am extremely frustrated with them. The dean and associate director of my nursing program have sent in a gap analysis as well as PMHNP program completion verification, but they are still refusing to release my certification. I feel like I am being punished for going for the DNP! Anyone have a similar experience? I am supposed to start a new PMHNP position on November 17 and don’t know what to do!
