American University of Beirut

 Psychiatric Mental Health Clinical Nurse Specialist

​​​The MSN program prepares nurses for advanced nursing practice roles and uses research-based knowledge to guide practice. In addition to training advanced practice nurses for clinical, management, and administration positions, the graduate program also offers students the opportunity to work with faculty on research projects on a wide range of topics.​

The Psychiatric Mental Health Clinical Nurse Specialist track is designed to train expert clinicians for positions in the rapidly changing field of psychiatric and mental health nursing and to fill teaching and clinical positions in health care in Lebanon and the region. The scarcity of resources in this field intensifies​ the need for nurses who can provide comprehensive patient-centered mental health care to individuals, groups, and families.
