Switching nursing specialty while starting FNP program

  1. I am in dire need of advice!
    So I've applied for a fall FNP program while currently working in a telemtry unit. I started this job a a new grad summer 2017 and it has been roughly 8 months. I knew that when I begin my FNP I'll have a little over a year of experience. My dilemma is that I know telemetry is NOT for me. My true passion is in women's health and post FNP my goal is to work on a women's clinic.
    I am hoping to apply soon for labor and delivery as well as mother baby units and begin around June.
    My question is, with beginning school and switching specialties around the same time is that a smart move? And also, should I apply for residency programs for women's health even with experience?
