    Annaiya- thanks for your respsonse regarding the flu shot. I will most likely be getting one.

    I guess I figured fnp, because like bostonfnp said, I'm not sure I want to put all my eggs in one basket. Working in women's health would be ideal for me, but I wanted to keep my options open ya know. What if when I start grad school, I decide there's something I'm more interested in, or what if when I get out of school there are no WH np jobs out there. I don't want to limit myself. Couldn't I still work in women's health if I go the fnp route?

    I am biased by being an FNP myself.

    When I went to grad school it was for the sole purpose of working inpatient oncology, and I was torn between ACNP and FNP. The program I attended decided to swap to single track FNP, and I went anyways. I am so glad they did. I found I loved primary/ambulatory care and didn't really enjoy my hospitalist/intensivist experiences.

    Sometimes you don't know until you experience the role.

    Yes, my main reason for going the np route is because I think I will be happier in primary care. I definately want to get some hospital experience, but in the long run I would love to work in a office/practice. Women's health and possibly mental health are the two most appealing to me as of right now. But who knows, I could change my mind once i start clinicals. In a few weeks I'm going to start volunteering in the icu of my local hospital. I know I won't be doing the actual work but I'll get the feel for the environment and see if I like it.
