PhD in Psychology vs PMH-APRN

  1. 0
    I currently have a masters in counseling psychology. It has been several years since I graduated and am considering pursing my licensure so I can do therapy. In addition to becoming licensed I am also thinking about pursing a PhD in Clinical or Counseling Psychology. However, I've been reading a lot about getting an advanced degree in psychiatric & mental health nursing and was wondering which direction would be better. I would enjoy doing therapy & would like the clinical aspect of working with mental health patients. I am less interested in doing research or teaching so I don't know that a PhD program would be best. I also am concerned about salary & job security & feel nursing might be a better route. I am 38 yrs old with 3 children to support so I don't see me being in school for several years either. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
