What job should I go for if I’m really interested in the reaction people have or the function of the brain?

Psychiatry and psychology is kinda want it to relate to. But with psychiatry, I don’t really want to be prescribing medication or tell them what they need to get better. It’s reading people’s reaction or body language to find the outcome of what they’re thinking that I’m interested in. Although, I would really prefer if it included less years for me to be in college, maybe four years max. If the pay was high that would be nice too.

Becoming a Psychiatric Nurse Practictioner with a Non-Nursing Degree?

Hi! Is there anyone who has gotten their BSN or MSN with a non-nursing degree? Can you share your experience? I've seen that Columbia and NYU have MSN programs for non-nursing degrees. I'm a rising senior in high school and I think I'll pursue a psychology degree in college, then apply to a MSN program for non-nursing degree to become a PMHNP. Is this the way to go?
