    I just wanted some advice, because I have no idea what to do.
    So I have just applied for nursing for sep intake to multiple unis. I work in dermatology along side dermatologists and plastic surgeons. Alot of my patients and these doctors say I should go straight into medicine . I already know that I want to be a nurse practioner, but I am having doubts whether to just go straight into medicine rather than nursing or do my nursing degree and do a postgrad PA course? There are so many options, and it can be frustrating when you see patients who do think you are a doctor and saying no to clinical advice, as you're not allowed. I am just unsure what route to take.

    Apart from your job have you gained any additional work experience in either field? They're both very different roles, what do you actually enjoy doing?

    Medicine is very competitive and its quite possible you wouldn't get in first time. Do you have the required grades?
