I am wanting to go back to school to get my Master's degree, but I am still unsure as to which route I should take.
Background: Interest in obstetrics, had 6 mos RN postpartum/antepartum experience, and most recently, 18 mos RN med/surg experience, and just recently relocated to NW Arkansas.
First off, I am torn as to which specialty I should pursue because even though I desire working in obstetrics and becoming a CNM, I have no experience in L&D, so I may or may not like it.
Also, I need some input regarding the job market for CNMs in NW Arkansas. This was another issue that I was having. I didn't see too many job opportunities for CNMs.
So comes my next option...becoming a FNP. Not as strong of a desire to become a FNP, but logistically, it makes sense to work in a specialty that may be desirable in my area (Bentonville, Rogers, Fayetteville).
Any input? TIA.
