Alison Miller, MSN, RN-BC, FAIS,
Hi, everyone! I'm the owner of PMHRN and your instructor for this PMHN Exam Prep Master Course. I've been a psychiatric nurse educator for more than 25 years--a job I still love--and am delighted to be able to work together with you in achieving your goal of becoming a Board Certified Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse.
With Board Certification becoming increasingly recognized and valued, I've turned all my attention to helping as many psychiatric nurses as I can reach that important goal. I've helped hundreds of nurses pass the exam on their first try and want to give you that same help and support.
When I'm not at my computer writing curriculum, I'm on the road lecturing...attending a Rays game...visiting family and friends... watching Husky videos...traveling to beautiful places...reading a Craig Johnson mystery...or hiking whatever trails I can find.
