The Montana State University College of Nursing is excited to announce development of the Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (FPMHNP) option as a new option for the Master’s in Nursing (MN) degree. This new MN degree option will be offered starting in Fall semester, 2009.

FPMHNP 3-Year Program of Study

The program will use distance learning methodologies and linkages with mental health providers across the state of Montana to: (1) make advanced psychiatric and mental health nursing education accessible to nurses throughout rural Montana; (2) contribute to improved healthcare outcomes for underserved populations by active recruitment of graduate students from minority and disadvantaged backgrounds; and, (3) help Montanans and others in sparsely populated areas of the region gain access to high-quality, psychiatric and mental health care.
