University of California San Francisco is launching an online program to help nurse practitioners get national certification to provide psychiatric and mental health services.

UCSF nursing school is working with the nursing schools at University of California-Davis and University of California-Los Angeles to launch the program this fall.

UCSF has an in-person post-master's psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioners program, one of three accredited, state-funded programs in California. The university will use that program's faculty and curriculum for the online course. It aims to recruit 40 students the first year.

Rosalind De Lisser, RN, and Deborah Johnson, DNP, RN, both associate professors at the UCSF School of Nursing, will co-direct the program.
