What is the difference between a Nurse Practitioner (NP) and a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP)?
An NP is a registered nurse who has completed a graduate program in nursing like a Master of Science in Nursing. This advanced training allows an NP to evaluate patients, create treatment plans, and prescribe medication. PMHNPs are NPs who have completed additional specialized training in providing mental health services. At ClearInsight Psychiatry, we believe that providing great healthcare is a team effort. Our PMHNPs treat patients under the direct supervision of our physician and allow us to provide the best care to our patients.
