For NP internships, how much of a role does candidate's dissertation topic/research area play? In terms of aligning with the site and increasing/decreasing odds? I'm a 2nd year, and I thought I wanted peds NP and pretty much agreed my 1st month in as a PhD student to have my dissertation be something pretty specific w/ my advisor. But for various reasons, now I am wondering if I should switch to adults, aging, dementia while I have the chance (right before starting dissertation, wrapping up masters project). I'm thinking ahead to internship, and would it look odd if I apply to adult sites while my dissertation is on children? I also very much dislike the idea of not going through w/ something I committed to, reg. advisor. I have heard that switching advisors after masters project is common though. Thoughts?
