    Dear members. I am a final year adult nursing student in London. I initially wanted to be a doctor but thought about the grades and the long period it takes to become a doctor and took a pause. I enrolled onto a Bsc Adult nursing but with months left to qualify, I have been reading more about Physician associate, watched videos and read a lot about the role. To be honest, am getting more attracted to this career path than nursing. Does anyone think ur would be a good idea to do a PA course or I should consider Adbanced nurse practitioner. My priority is autonomy.

    Thank you

    If autonomy and being an independent practitioner is your top priority then I imagine the ANP route would be more suited to you.
