What is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner?

Psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners (PMHNP) and psychiatrists have similar job duties. They both assess, diagnose, and treat those with mental health conditions and work closely with patients to prevent, identify, and manage symptoms resulting from psychiatric or substance disorders. Both clinicians are experts in psychopharmacology, and they each possess an in-depth knowledge of psychiatric medications and how to prescribe them effectively.
