Nurse practitioners, also referred to as advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), coordinate patient care and may provide primary and specialty healthcare, and work in a wide variety of healthcare settings, including hospitals, physicians' offices, and clinics.
Their experience as working nurses gives them a unique approach to patient care, while their advanced studies qualify them to take on additional duties that are usually left to physicians. Nurse Practitioners must earn at least a master’s degree and must also be licensed in their state and pass a national certification exam.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median salary for NPs holding master's degrees is around $110,930 annually. Demand for licensed NPs is expected to climb 31% by 2026, much faster than the average growth rate for all occupations, that means that employers are expected to create about 64,200 new NP jobs in the coming years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
