Doctor of Nursing Practice / Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
Liberty University

Program Details

Liberty University’s Post MSN Doctor of Nursing Practice, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner offers the opportunity to obtain the education necessary for the American Nurse Credentialing Center Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner national exam. There are many nurse practitioners certified to serve other populations, but they lack the necessary skills to help those with mental health needs. The program provides students with the skills needed to provide patient care with a level of expertise needed in the industry due to a lack of mental health providers available across the nation.
