An obvious difference is an MBBS/MD graduate can progress to vocational training to become a specialist (including GP), an NP can't.I am torn between becoming an NP and an MD. I've been googling but I cannot find answers as to what the differences are and they both seem like good careers.
Well, NPs can "specialise" too. For example, can become specialised in dialysis, or chemotherapy, or basic emergency medicine, or drug and alcohol services.An obvious difference is an MBBS/MD graduate can progress to vocational training to become a specialist (including GP), an NP can't.
What exactly do you mean? Do you mean things like work/life balance, patient interaction, etc.?A while ago you posted a thread saying you were torn between midwifery and obstetrics. I posed the question: “what do you want out of your career?”
I pose the same question to you now.
Aren't there also other specialities like paediatrics, neonatal and ICU?
Indeed, nurse practitioners necessarily specialise - their scope of practice is limited to what they've trained in (ie being an NP is not the equivalent of being a general practitioner or general physician).
