APPMHNs have full prescriptive authority along with the ability to provide psychiatric evaluation, diagnosis and treatment. The APPMHN is also prepared to obtain their personal DEA numbers. With prescriptive authority, psychiatric nurses are well positioned to provide psychotropic pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy without needing to refer a patient out for a service. Qualified to practice independently, APPMHNs offer direct care services in a variety of settings such as private practices, hospitals, community mental health programs and other facilities.
