    PNP vs Pediatrician

    Makes sense. I have all A’s currently, but that’s high school, not college. I love bio and A&P, am *okay* with Chemistry, and I don’t have much physics knowledge but am good at what I do know. Thank you!

    PNP vs Pediatrician

    Hi! This is my first post (in fact I just made this account a couple minutes ago) so if I do anything wrong, I apologize. I know questions similar to this have been asked, but I’m very confused and was hoping for specific advice. I’m about to start college and really want to make a final decision. I’m very interested in health care, specifically Primary Care Pediatrics and have narrowed my choices down to Pediatrician or Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. Working in the NICU has crossed my mind as well, and it’s a consideration, but primary care pediatrics is more likely. My parents REALLY want me to go to PNP route, which is something I certainly understand. It is faster than the MD route and I want to be very involved in direct patient care. The nursing model is more appealing because again, being involved the the patients’ care is very important to me. If I went the PNP route, would my role differ much from that of a pediatrician? I’m just at a crossroads here because I want to be a leader and I’m scared of patients and their families not trusting me without the MD title, but I truly do prefer the role of Nurses/Nurse Practitioners and how involved they are. Do you NPs face problems from patients and families, or do you not have too many problems? From your guys’ experience, would you recommend the PNP or Pediatrician route? I’m sorry it’s so long, just very confused LOL. Please let me know what you guys think. Thank you so much!
