I am so utterly confused...! I am currently an LPN working at a great facility as a methadone dosing nurse. They have just announced a program with Ashford University that will allow employees to go to school tuition-free. I have my Bachelor's of Art in Psychology and French, always intended on going back to get my master's and do social work but I started working as a psychiatric technician and loved working on the floor with the patients. Fast forward 15 years and I planned to move from NY to FL...knowing the big salary difference I did a 13 month LPN program. So now I want to take advantage of this opportunity to get my Master's but don't know which one. Ashford only offers MA in psychology and PsyD. I'm really interested in research, solving problems, writing, not so much doing therapy...I've moved away from that. My initial goal for the last 4 years was to do an LPN to RN bridge program but they are hard to find and because I already have a bachelor's no employer will pay for another bachelor's degree...the other alternative is to get an associate's RN but that just seems backwards to me as the next step would be nurse practitioner (Master of Science) and you need the bachelor's....! Any advice????
