Faculty Coordinator: Kunsook Bernstein, kbernst@hunter.cuny.edu

This specialization prepares nurses for roles as advanced practice registered nurses delivering psychiatric and mental health services. Psychiatric/mental health practitioners provide mental health treatment, preventive services, consultation and leadership in hospitals, clinics, community settings and private practice. Through classwork and 600 hours of supervised clinical experience, students learn to provide these services autonomously and in collaboration with other mental health professionals. Graduates of this program meet the educational requirements for national board certification by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. They are also eligible for New York State NP certification.
