Dear Aspirant,

I am very glad to see you approach CareerGuide.com for seeking guidance and clarifications for your career development. Let me assure that you have selected the right platform to get advice from.
I think I can guide you considering my more than 10 years of experience in counselling and industry. I appreciate your detailed query.

I would seriously ask you to reconsider your decision of doing a PhD in Psychology. You are an MSc in Nursing and I would suggest you to do PhD in an area of nursing or hospital science or hospital management. After MSc you can definitely pursue a PhD from any recognised State University.

I would sincerely urge you to do a Phd in Nursing or Hospital related topics.

Please do get back to me in case you are still wanting to ask some thing or require any more clarification or guidance. I will be very glad to help you out and see you become successful in your career.

Best wishes,

Dear Aspirant,

Thanks for your question. What made you think to pursue PhD in Psychology after doing MSc in Nursing?
How can PhD in Psychology benefit you and help you grow your career?

If you want to pursue PhD in Psychology discipline, you can do. Not all colleges/University accept non-psychology students for PhD program but certainly you can pursue.

As Dr. Anand suggested, doing PhD in Nursing or public health field would be more rewarding. You may take up psychological variables for your PhD research and you can do psychological research being in the field of Nursing or Public Health. You may do certificate course in psychology or any relevant subject.

Wish you all the best with your career,
