I recently graduated with a B.S. in Physiology and realized at that instant that becoming a dentist isn't my true passion, rather, the medical fields is much more exciting to me. With that said, I've been deciding between a NP route vs an MD/DO route. I know the NP philosophy is centered around patient-centered care vs just treating the disease which is one reason why I'm attracted to it. But the question I would like to ask is has anyone here in this forum ever considered the NP route over the MD/DO route and why? Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
I'm currently volunteering at a medical clinic and will shadow both NPs and MD/DOs to see which one I prefer the most.
