2024-19:  Educating PMHNPs to Deliver Effective Integrated Care: Outcomes from a Three-Year Grant-Funded Initiative 

Most people who experience mental illness receive assistance from providers in primary care settings. To better meet their needs, an innovative program was developed that prepared PMHNP and FNP students to deliver effective integrated care (IC). Outcomes will provide guidelines for creating a sustained focus on IC within PMHNP programs.
