Hi, I'm an undergrad student right now, but I'm interested in advanced practice. The two areas that interest me most are the Family Practice setting and the ER. I know the two are as different as night and day, but in my rural area, it's quite normal for the family docs to work the ER. I'm wondering how much your "specialty" limits you in your field or getting jobs.
My question is about applying for programs.. If I go to an FNP program will I be prepared to work in the ER, or if I go with Acute CNS would I be able to work in a family practice clinic? even if I was prepared, could I get the job?
I guess I'm just confused on how this works.
