Hello all! I am needing some advice. I am an RN with an AA degree and nearly 15 years of nursing experience (and licensed in the state of WA). I've always promised myself I'd go back to school "one day", and now that my kids are grown, now's the time
Over my years of experience, I've developed a keen appreciation for psychology and working with those with mental heath needs. I've decided what I most would like to do ultimately get my nurse practitioner license in psychology.
The question I have, and need advice on, is just how do I go about doing this!? I realize my BSN is required first, but after that, I'm a bit lost. For the state of WA, do I need a masters, then enter an ARNP program?
Also, at least for the BSN portion of my furthering education, I prefer at this time to take my courses online. Any advice on good, accredited RN to BSN programs?
Any and all input is appreciated!! ~Dawn
