Specializes in Cardiothoracic Progressive.

I currently work in cardiothoracic progressive and most of my background is cardiac even though I just started as a nurse in March. I know I want to go on to be an NP, but I always pictured myself working as an NP in women's health and know that's where I want to end up. I was wondering if it is possible to switch specialties once in NP school or if it is absolutely necessary and required to have experience in OB/GYN? Obviously the ideal is for me to work as a nurse in OB, but I was just wondering if it's still possible if I don't. I would truly appreciate any feedback or advice, thanks!
