Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Program
The past decade has witnessed efforts to destigmatize mental health while also providing greater access to lifesaving mental health services — increasing the demand for skilled mental health practitioners. This need has intensified as communities cope with the stress, depression, irritability, insomnia, fear, confusion, anger, frustration, and boredom associated with COVID-19, economic struggles, and contentious political ideologies.
The 100% online BSN-DNP program with a concentration in psychiatric mental health at Hawai‘i Pacific University can prepare you to assess, diagnose, and treat patients with mental health issues. Additionally, as a DNP-credentialed nursing professional, you can be well positioned for leadership, advocacy, or policy-related roles.
Note: Upon completion of our BSN to DNP program, the DNP degree will be awarded. This program does not lead to the MSN degree.
