What is the quickest way for an RN to become a RNP?

I'm trying to find out the best route, and the quickest yet best quality, to become a nurse practitioner. I'm an RN with an Associate Degree, and have been in the medical field for 29 yrs, since high school. I'm interested in learning something new, and would like to stay in the medical field despite a partial disability I have. This makes it impossible to continue with physical, or even sedentary nursing, so more autonomy would be great. If there are any legitimate at home job for an RN, that would be very helpful in the meantime. Any ideas? I've been Charge nurse in a high acuity med-surg unit in a teaching hospital, and presently Charge in a Surgery/Oncology unit. I also work ENT/Ortho/GI/GU/Oral/Plastics/Derm clinics, and Minor surgery. I was a certified scrub tech prior. I worked in the OR for 10 yrs. I trained at the best, 'Big Charity' in New Orleans. Motto: 'See one, do one, teach one' I specialized in Ortho and Neuro, training new staff. Thanks for input!

I think that you need to go back to school for your BSN. Most university's have RN to BSN (15 months-ish) programs. After that, you would have to go to grad school. Good luck!
