Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner BSN to NP

Posted

Specializes in Psychiatry. Has 4 years experience.

My employer will only reimburse for a university that has their HLC Accreditation (Higher Learning Commission Accreditation) Does anyone know which universities do? I was all set to go with Drexel University until I received this information today! Because they are willing to pick up $20,000 of the tuition I just can't any way to justify walking away from that much money! Any colleges that you know of that are online and have the HLC accreditation would be greatly appreciated!

I live in Ohio and there are presently no land based classes near me.

Thanks!

Thank you very much!! I will check them out! I also found a lot of great information on the Nurse practitioner association web site:

AANP - Home if anyone wants to check it out. Go to the Education tab on their site.

Thanks MrChicago for the help and I have used HLC website to verify universities standings now. But their website does not allow you to search by a specialty or by online learning so it is very tedious to find a program that way. But thank you for trying!! I will keep marching on!

Check University of North Dakota. I have been reviewing their programs for NP and it is online with 2 separate weeks of on campus visits. They seem to have a great reputation. I am specifically looking at PMHNP and post masters PMHNP.
