More can be done to provide access to much-needed mental health services. You can start by earning your online Master of Science – Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner degree with University of North Dakota.


More than 46 million American adults have a mental health condition. Of those, one in five needs mental health care — that’s 9 million. Even more concerning is that the rate of youth experiencing a mental health condition continues to rise, and they aren’t receiving proper treatment.

What can you learn from UND’s online Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner M.S. program at University of North Dakota?

Every patient is different, which means every diagnosis is, too. It also means every treatment plan needs to be different. As a psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner, it will be up to you to identify risk factors for certain disorders and determine the best way to offer your patients the best treatment for their mental illness symptoms.

By choosing this specialty, you’ll learn how to develop a differential diagnosis, determine the best treatment interventions and evaluate patient progress — all while promoting mental health awareness.
