Academic partner: Duke University School of Nursing

With generous support from the Office for Academic Affiliations (OAA), the Durham VA Health Care System in partnership with the Duke University School of Nursing, has developed an innovative new psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) Post-Graduate Training Program. This builds upon a long-standing collaboration between the two organizations.

The PMHNPs will advance from novice to competent nurse practitioners while developing competencies in Veterans’ health care needs. Through mentored clinical experiences and professional development activities, PMHNPs will be prepared to provide mental health services for the veteran population.
