Please forgive my ignorance. I'm still quite new to all of this, but I'm learning a great deal from you all, as well as do some info gathering on my own.
I'm an RN, but up until very recently was attending med school.Well...to make a long story short, it no longer appears to be a viable choice for me. Sometimes life gets in the way
.Anyway the next best thing for me would be an NP (FNP) track. Are any of you practicing in the fields of derm, neuro, sports medicine? Is there such a thing as radiology NPs? The above fields are considered to be competetive among docs,but that's mainly $$$ and lifestyle issues. Also one field that I'm very interested in is allergy/immunology. I have personaly Tx'd lots, and lots of ppl quite successfully in my Acupuncture practice for the multitude of kind of difficult to Dx, vaguely defined symptoms and problems. But I certainly want to have the knowledge, and the authority to be able to Dx, Tx, run some conventional tests etc. Is all of that attainable by becoming an NP?
Your thoughts, suggestions, comments etc are greatly appreciated!
Thanks a lot
