Dear Aspirant
Welcome to CareerGuide.com
I am very happy to answer your question and clear your doubts.

First of all, let me congratulate on the choice you made by selecting MSC Psychiatric Nursing. I sincerely hope that you selected that course out of passion and not because you want to earn more money. Career is all about passion. A passionate career person earns knowledge and experience. The knowledge and experience gives the person what ever the industry can offer and it shall be maximum. Passion towards the career is primary and incentives secondary. Hope I am clear.

In every sense Psychiatric nursing is a good field in the service sector. You can practice as a general nurse at a general ward even after completing your MSc or PHD degree. That choice is purely yours. But then the salary also will be like the one for general nurses.

This qualification gives you multiple opportunities inside India as well as abroad. These qualifications are recognized in many countries such as Great Britain, France, United States of America, Australia, New Zealand etc. Psychiatric Nursing gives you a lot of opportunities in clinical, managerial, education and research fields.

Clinical field includes staff nurse, psychiatric nurse, Psychiatric worker etc.
Managerial field includes Nurse manager which has promotion options in the management hierarchy itself. Then you can carry on to reach Nursing Director.
In Education field, the opportunity starts with lecturer, reader, associate professor, professor, then you can become a principal of any nursing college.
Research field is wide open for people like you. Then you are called scientist and you can carry on upto director of research centre.

In any case the opportunities are abundant. As I mentioned in the beginning, the passion towards your career brings out the perfect nurse.

Hope this answers your query.
Good luck.
