The RN Mental Health Nursing Certificate Program is a self-paced, on-line, instructor-supported program that prepares Registered Nurses to work in Mental Health settings.
The clinical component of the program is your opportunity to apply your learning to your practice. The form that your clinical experience will take, clinical placement or knowledge transfer, will be based on your experience and learning needs, as determined through an interview with the Douglas College Continuing Education faculty.
Please note that Preceptorship arrangements are not available to students living outside of Canada.
You must submit to Continuing Education, Faculty of Health Sciences:
You have a maximum of 24 months to complete all the courses in the program with Knowledge Transfer completion, or up to 18 months to complete the program with Clinical Practice completion.
This is a maximum timeline, based on the maximum timelines available to complete each of the courses in the program. As courses are self-paced and begin once per month, dedicated students may complete the entire program in less than the maximum time permitted.
Upon successful completion of the program, you will be awarded a Douglas College Continuing Education program certificate: RN Mental Health Nursing which is issued by the Graduation Office in the Office of the Registrar.
