I am a critical care nurse with a BSN and a BS in psych. I like my job but believe that I have a stronger calling in counseling. I am considering two of the many routes: an MSN in psych nursing or an MSW? I am more inclined to do the MSN route because I already have a BSN, Shorter duration, many options for school either online or class, and it just seems more convenient overall. However, I am under the impression that mental health NPs usually work in drug dependency, methadone clinics. The kind of work that I want to do is one on one counseling. The typical therapist with the couch and how-does-it-make-you-feel kind of work. What route do you think is best?
