    Hello and welcome to the site. I moved your thread to Pre-Nurse Practitioner Inquiry where I think you will get more response.

    I asked around and spoke to different nurse practitioner and they all said that the family 1 is better because you can always specialize later,, unless you are positive you are going to always want to work with the geriatric population. But the family nurse practitioner will allow work in any field. Check the schools passing rate for the nurse practitioner certification program and make sure they are accredited.

    Wow. Caps.

    Based on national trends, FNP is the way to go.
