Program Overview

Concordia's new Psychiatric Mental Health (PMH) post-master’s certificate is a flexible, fully online program that can help continue your education journey. With courses built on a Christian foundation, we will prepare you to become a compassionate provider by providing the knowledge needed to administer the best care possible to your patients.

This program can be completed in as little as one year with a total of 500 clinical hours. Your clinical hours can be completed over the course of the program, including optional weekend and evening clinical rotations. 

Please note: States have established standards of practice for the nursing profession. While at the present time, we cannot provide a particular state’s educational requirements for licensing, we can assure you that we will provide you with the contact information for the Board of Nursing for the state in which you are doing your study. We are currently not accepting new students from Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, South Dakota, Tennessee, or Wyoming. Additionally, Washington D.C. students are required to do clinicals in Virginia.

What to Expect

Our PMH post-master’s certificate will give you the skills and knowledge to take the next step in your career. Throughout the program, we will place emphasis on neurobiology, psychopharmacology, and psychotherapy for the diagnosis and treatment of mental health needs. Over the course of three semesters, you will be able to apply the skills you learn in the required clinical hours.
