Meet Norman M. Jacobowitz, MSN, PMHNP-BC
Norm graduated from Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama, in 1992. While working in the IT industry, he volunteered as a suicide hotline telephone worker for a year. Finding the work both rewarding and much in need, he took a massive pay cut to work in a psychiatric hospital, caring for the most vulnerable and gravely ill patients. He attended nursing school during this time, and upon graduation became a psychiatric nurse, earning the title of Board Certified Psychiatric Nurse (RN-BC).
He earned his Nurse Practitioner (MSN) degree at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia in 2010 and completed further studies at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, to become a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner.
He’s nationally certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (PMHNP-BC) and is licensed to prescribe psychiatric medications in Virginia. Norm treats conditions ranging from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to schizophrenia spectrum disorders. He takes time to get to know each patient and their symptoms and adjusts medications as necessary in subsequent visits.
Though Norm doesn’t provide talk therapy, he’s happy to work with each patient’s therapist or primary-care provider to ensure the best outcomes.
