Does it matter which MSN specialization you have prior to getting a post master's FNP or PNP? I'm looking at informatics because it interests me as well, but doesn't seem very "nurse-y."
If you know that your goal is NP, why would you spend the time, effort, and $$$ on getting a different MSN first? Why not just do the MSN in your preferred NP concentration?
Twofold- informatics interests me also, but the program I'm looking at only offers education, leadership & management, & informatics. I know I don't want the other two. Using this program may take an extra couple of semesters, but will be less expensive.
