McGill Nursing faculty members are offering a free information session on our new Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Program.
The McGill Ingram School of Nursing (ISoN) Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Program, along with its University of Quebec collaborators, is one of two training programs in the province of Quebec.
The aim of the program is to provide a unique opportunity for the development of advanced practice mental health nursing skills. Students will explore areas pertaining to services offered in the first, second and third line to become familiar with several roles, encompassing one of communicator, collaborator, manager, scholar/professional advocate and leader. This will be of importance when caring for individuals experiencing mental and physical distress, with or without addictions across the lifespan.
A systemic, collaborative and strengths-based approach with the family is central as thorough mental health evaluation, pharmacotherapy and prescriptive authority for invasive exams may become part of treatment. Education, crisis intervention, planning, liaison and follow-up are strong components of this multifaceted role.
