PMHNP Initiative at Shenandoah University

The Psychiatric Mental-Health Nurse Practitioner Initiative is a collaborative
arrangement between the Psychiatric Mental-Health Nurse Practitioner track and other
schools of nursing. Through this arrangement, the graduate nursing student attending those
schools will receive an endorsement in Psychiatric Mental-Health Nurse Practitioner after
completing the 25 credit hours of graduate Psychiatric Mental-Health Nurse Practitioner
courses from Shenandoah University as they are completing their graduate degree from
their home school of nursing. Upon successful completion of this program, the student will
receive a graduate degree from their home nursing school and an Endorsement in
Psychiatric Mental-Health Nurse Practitioner from Shenandoah University. The graduate will
then be eligible to sit for the American Nurses Credentialing Certification PMHNP
Examination.

Admission to this option requires successful admission to the school of nursing at the home
university. At the present time, Shenandoah University has collaborative agreements with
the following schools of nursing for Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing:

Marshall University School of Nursing

West Virginia Wesleyan Department of Nursing

Radford University School of Nursing
