What to Expect!

In exchange for a 12-month paid service commitment, PMHNP graduates and new hires will receive preceptorship, clinical supervision of prescriptive practice, and weekly didactic trainings and grand rounds to enhance their knowledge and enrich their experience.

PMHNP students will receive preceptorship and hands on community experience that will increase their knowledge and skill of providing psychiatric mental health services in a community health center (CHC). Students will receive a stipend for their participation in the Fellowship and may be eligible to participate in a second semester at the CHC providing approval is granted by their PMHNP Program clinical placement coordinator. Students will be invited to apply for the graduate Fellowship upon graduation.
