The Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program provides students with opportunities to practice as a PMHNP, meeting the requirements for advanced practice established by the Texas Board of Nurse Examiners. The program has had a 100% pass rate for National Certification Examinations for the last five years. Often, our PMHNP students are employed before their graduation date.

NOTE: The Family Nurse Practitioner and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner programs have a deadline for all applications and application materials that is different from the standard MSU Texas deadline. Please visit their website for more information.
