    That is a great resource! One more that I didn't see mentioned in this fairly long thread is the US Dept of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics website. In addition to a lot of information regarding job requirements for a variety of nursing specialties you can also find salary information, job outlook data... well, from the website, here's a list of subheadings under which you can find all kinds of information:

    # Nature of the Work
    # Training, Other Qualifications, and Advancement
    # Employment
    # Job Outlook
    # Projections Data
    # Earnings
    # OES Data
    # Related Occupations
    # Sources of Additional Information

    I found it very useful!

    What can one do with an NP in womens health?

    I was recently accepted into an FNP program - I choose it because I felt that it would offer me the ability to practice anywhere. However, the school is very expensive and 40K a year. I am in my 30's and do not want to be in dept so I am considering going to a state school - unfortunately they don't offer an FNP program and my alternatives are to continue where I am, drive 2 hours away for school or change my NP program. The state college I can apply to has ANP and a Womens health NP. I love preventative care but I don't want to be stuck doing pap smears in an office. I love teaching people about good health, nutrition and exercise. Would I be able to merge what I want in a career with an NP in womens health????
    THanks
