NPCSI: Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner

Students using a simulation human


All students in the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner specialty are required to attend one* mandatory virtual Clinical Skills Intensive (CSI) during the fall term in which they are registered for CMN 548 and CMN 551. Instruction is provided by the USA Simulation Program.

The PMHNP CSI includes instruction in advanced practice mental health assessment and clinical reasoning practiced in a telemedicine setting with standardized patients. 

Simulation will contact students via Jag Mail with information on how to sign-up three months prior to the scheduled dates. After students receive this information, they will have the opportunity to select their preferred session on a first come, first serve basis.

The sign-up process is done through a Canvas project site. Do not email Simulation requesting dates, students required to attend will be contacted by Simulation.

Please note the dates are for Clinical Skills Intensives only. The track coordinator may provide orientation dates, which are separate from CSI and Simulation.
