Why should you consider choosing a Psychiatric ARNP?
Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners (PMHNP) diagnose and treat mental illness. More importantly, PMHNPs take the time to partner with patients to help them achieve their own goals, focusing on holistic, personalized mental health care.
PMHNPs work autonomously in Washington State—without the supervision of a medical doctor. PMHNPs have full prescription authority, so they are able to prescribe a full range of medications to fit patient needs.
Many PMHNPs accept private insurance, HMOs, PPOs, Medicare, and Medicaid.
You can find PMHNPs in a variety of direct patient care settings, including:
- Outpatient facilities
- Community clinics
- Schools and universities
- Private practice
PMHNPs must be licensed by Washington State Department of Health as Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioners (ARNPs). They are also certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). To maintain their professional license and ANCC credentials, PMHNPs continually enhance their expertise through continuing education.
