Indiana requires RA doctoral degrees for licensure as a psychologist. Some states (Kansas, WVA, VT, etc.) license master's level psychologists and that is why I said "some do" to your question about can some be licensed as a psychologist with only an NA degree.

A friend of mine asked me about CCU's Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership degree and I must say, it does look very attractive. I will have to check it out as well. I am not so sure what one can do with such a degree but will find out.

Although I'm retired I try to keep up with events in the field since I still do a bit of training. I'd heard that Indiana amended its standards so I took a look at the website and found this to be so in two ways: 1) academics, and, 2) supervised experience.

http://www.in.gov/legislative/iac/20100 ... A.xml.html

Sec. 1. Degree programs will be approved by the board for the purpose of licensure if they Applicants for licensure shall have completed a doctoral program in psychology that is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) or the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) at the time of graduation or where APA or CPA program accreditation does not exist the program must meet all of the following criteria: requirements:

Yes, getting licensed as a psychologist requires meeting stringent criteria. It was never my intention to shoot for licensure with the Ed.D. Don't really know how this thread moved in that direction. Being licensed as a school psychologist requires different criteria, however, and that is a route I may strive for unless I enroll in the organizational leadership program.
