In 2019, Tennessee was ranked 45th and Virginia 40th in the number of mental health providers available (America’s Health Rankings, 2019). The Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) Program is a new concentration added to the pre-existing Master of Science in Nursing and post-APRN, Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, certificate programs within King’s School of Nursing. The program was designed to be delivered through online methods, and King’s unique location on the TN/VA line allows it to reach into both states as well as into surrounding areas. The main goal of the program is to give students the skills and qualifications to help fill the demand for mental health services in the area.
