Best route for NP...

Ok, here are my questions...

I am an RN getting ready to graduate soon with my BSN. I want to get into an MSN program soon after. My interest is to become a nurse practitioner and to specialize in infectious medicine/epidemiology. Would I be best off to go through and ACNP or FNP program? My other question is how high of a demand is there for NPs in this specialty area?

TIA!

I don't think ACNP's can see children. That's a large part of ID's population. I would say FNP.
