Default Do I need to be able to ride switch before learning park?

I'm a new to intermediate rider and interested in riding park. I'm comfortable riding single blacks at this time with decent speed and control. As far as my park skills go I'm only confident enough right now to take on ride on rails/boxes and small hits. When it comes to progressing further did most people already know how to ride switch before attempting anything else, or did you learn both at the same time? Don't get me wrong I can do a full green run switch, but that's about my limit without falling based on fear alone. Just wanting some feedback on if I should change up the game plan and focus on switch alone, my goals this year are pop on rail 50's and front/back 180's. any input appreciated, even if it's just "man up and take a fall here or there."
