I want to work with children that have injuries or issues from sports, so I thought the correct pathway would be to become a nurse first and then specialize from there?

Is it possible to become an Athletic Trainer and a Physical Therapist?

My goal is to be a professional in sports medicine field. I came from another country to learn sports medicine as I want to become an Athletic Trainer. I know it is pretty hard since I am a second language learner, however I am also interested in nutrition, physical therapy, and orthopaedic/sports doctor. Becoming a sports doctor might be impossible, so I was thinking about majoring in kinesiology and have a minor in nutrition (4 year university), but if it is possible, I would like to become both an athletic trainer and a physical therapist. I am currently in Community College with Kinesiology major. The hardest point here is I am 23 yrs old and have a 2 yrs old son. I really want to be woking for patients and athletes. Is it possible for me to get double licenses? If so, after I finish BS in Kinesiology, can I apply for DPT? Sorry for complicated details. Thank you for reading! #athletictraining #kinesiology #physical-therapy #physical-therapist #sports-medicine #college-major #orthopedics #orthodontist #athletic-trainer
