Answer by d
As a PNP are you meaning a psychiatric nurse prac? if so, you have to have a bsn and then obtain a msn (which this will be changing within the next few years, i believe 2013, which then you have to have a dnp-doctorate). if you want to continue with your bachelors in psychology, you can do so, but you will still have to obtain a bsn, which there are some second-degree bsn’s which are around 18 months long. i would speak with your university (if they have a nursing program) for further information.
