Practicum Journal: Checkpoint for Certification PlanPsychiatric/mental health nurse practitioners currently have only one choice for certification, which is through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). The ANCC offers the “psychiatric/mental-health nurse practitioner (across the lifespan)” board certification (PMHNP-BC). In many states, board certification is needed as a prerequisite to being granted an NP license. Even if board certification is not a requirement for state licensure, it may be a requirement to receive privileges in various hospitals and other health care facilities. It may also be required by malpractice insurance providers prior to issuing coverage to NPs.Learning ObjectivesStudents will:Evaluate progress on certification plansReport your progress on the Certification Plan you completed in Week 4 (SEE ATTACHED WEEK 4 CERTIFICATION PLAN DONE)AssignmentWrite a 2- to 3-page paper in which you do the following:1) What have you done to prepare for your certification?2) Have you completed the scheduled tasks assigned on your timeline as younoted in week 4 ?
