About

The Capstone College of Nursing (CCN) at The University of Alabama offers the online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree with specialization in the Dual Nurse Practitioner (NP) Concentration in Psychiatric Mental Health and Family Nurse Practitioner. 

Overview

Key Features

This dual NP concentration at The University of Alabama prepares students to sit for both the Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) – across the lifespan and the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) national board certification exams. Single role concentrations in these NP specialties are also offered. The FNP concentration prepares students for certification as an FNP, and the PMHNP concentration prepares students for certification as a PMHNP – across the lifespan. 

Students complete coursework online and attend two on-campus sessions (one day each) during their program of study. Students are expected to find individual sites and preceptors; however, CCN will assist students with this process to secure a CCN Letter of Agreement (LOA) or Clinical Affiliation Agreement with the healthcare agency.Nurse Practitioners are health promotion and disease prevention experts who manage and diagnose common acute and chronic illnesses. Nurse Practitioners provide quality, safe, cost-effective care.
