I can't speak for other provinces, in BC, you can start your specialty education after ~ 2 years med/surg experience. UBC requires at minimum 2 years nursing experience before starting NP training.
Even in specialties, you still wash and mobilize patients (ER, ICU, peds) and reposition. Most new grads start in med/ surgical units In the hospital, but there are other options of home health or public health. Beyond that, you have nursing informatics, occupational health, infectious disease etc. There are so many options that you can try but ere is nothing wrong with med surg. It is also a good specialty to start because you develop your critical thinking, time management and nursing skills
