I have worked in long term care/geripsych for over ten years and love it I was thinking about becoming a Psych NP, but have been wondering about which path to travel. It seems like so much money to me and a BSN seems like an extra step/extra money. Would getting a Bachelor in psych and then getting into a NP program be an option or a RN-MSN be a better option. I just feel like a BSN in nursing is a lot of fluff for the money. I am not saying it's wasted education by any means, but what about a bachelors in something different?
