Needing help! Trying to find a second degree rn to np program

  1. Hey everyone I have been doing a lot of research and can't seem to find anything specific to my predicament. I am currently enrolled in an adn program and will be done in 3 semesters. I already have a BA in counseling psych and would like to become a psychiatric NP. Anyone out there know of any programs that are second degree rn's wanting to get into psych NP?
    I am just looking for the quickest route so I can get into what I want to do. Thanks

    My alma mater, Boston College, has such a program. I believe there are many schools around the country that offer RN to MSN bridge programs. You can always call local schools and see what they have to offer. Good luck!

    I think most of those programs are designed for people without RN licensure. You need to find an RN to MSN program that doesn't require a BSN. Even though it doesn't make sense many entry level MSN programs stipulate that you cannot be an RN.

    Duke has a ton of RN-MSN, not apsych one, though They encourage those w/ previous bachelors to go straight into MSN programs.

    I've seen plenty of RN-MSN programs, and plenty of accelerated (or second degree) BSN and MSN programs. But I don't think I've seen any second degree RN-MSN programs. I think you would essentially just transfer in any GE or applicable credits from your undergrad to knock off some classes, but I'm not entirely sure. Good luck in your search!

    Vanderbilt has one, I believe.
