Nurse Practitioner Programs
The Monmouth MSN Nurse Practitioner program provides the opportunity to become an autonomous advanced practice nurse by helping you build confidence in intellectual and clinical proficiency. You’ll be mentored to reach your full potential by developing autonomy, leadership, and professionalism. Three nurse practitioner tracks are offered:
Family Nurse Practitioner
The Family Nurse Practitioner track focuses on the care of a patient population throughout the lifespan, from newborn to older adult.
Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner
There is a growing demand for psychiatric advanced practice nurses in a variety of treatment settings including outpatient clinics, acute inpatient units, partial day programs, prisons, long-term care facilities, and private practices.
Our psychiatric/mental health APN curriculum will prepare you to provide comprehensive mental health assessments, as well as diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders across the lifespan.
Therapeutic treatment modalities include psychiatric medication initiation and management, as well as individual, family, and group psychotherapy.
Adult-Gerontological Primary Care Nurse Practitioner
To accommodate the large aging population, Adult-Gerontological Primary Care Nurse Practitioners focus on the care of the adult and older adult, including physiological changes and needs.
If you already have your MSN, you may prepare for a more advanced nursing role by earning a Post-Master’s Certificate in three disciplines:
- Family Nurse Practitioner (30 credits)
- Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (33 credits)
- Adult-Gerontological Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (27 credits)
