American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) is currently the only option for PMHNPs to obtain the national certification as a PMHNP-BC (across the lifespan). Board certification is not a requirement in all the states for the NP license, but malpractice insurance providers and many health care facilities may require NP board certification as a prerequisite to grant privilege to practice.
