At Frontier Nursing University, we’re proud to be innovators in the graduate nursing education space enabling nurses everywhere to realize their dream and achieve a rewarding career. But the field of nursing offers many unique specialties, and for students interested in using their careers to promote mental health and wellness, becoming a psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner offers an excellent option.
We’re proud to offer a world-class Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) program that makes it easy for certified Nurse-Midwives, Nurse Practitioners, and RNs with associate’s or bachelor’s degrees to get the education they need to succeed in this field on their own time.

Every student is different – and that’s why we’re proud to offer a range of options in our PMHNP program. No matter what field or level of education you’re coming from, we offer a flexible path to certification as a psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner.
