Program Requirements

**NEW PROGRAM**

The Graduate Certificate in Theory in Mental Health prepares students to acquire the theoretical knowledge required to subsequently complete clinical courses in the Graduate Diploma in Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.

Students should complete 6-12 credits in preparatory theory courses prior to entry into the Graduate Certificate program (the specific number of preparatory courses required will depend on courses completed during their master's degree). Students should consult with the program Academic Adviser prior to applying.
