I am a nursing student. My school offers a 5 year program, where I could get my master's, and I think I want to do this. My only problem is that the master's can only be in Family Care, so I would be a Family Care Nurse Practitioner, but I would like to specialize in Pediatrics. The head of my nursing department said that if I got this degree, I could still work only in pediatrics after graduating, and would also have more job opportunity than if I just become a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. I just don't understand, if I do the program at my school and specialize in Family Care, would I be able to work in any area I want, such as pediatrics, since I would have experience in all of them? Or would I only be able to work as a Family Care nurse practitioner, because I do not want to do that.
Sorry for all of the confusion and thank you so much for your help!!
