As a Nurse Practitioner, there’s no place to go but everywhere!
Qualified nurse practitioners are in high demand. Many nurse practitioners first worked as registered nurses where treatment of patients extended to holistic and wellness care. An NP brings that nursing background to the treatment and management of medical issues. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that by 2022, the nurse practitioner field will grow by 33.7 percent, opening up a whopping 37,100 new positions. This growth rate is more than double the national average for other occupations, providing job security for nurse practitioners that aren’t found in other professions. Nurse Practitioners are also handsomely paid for their work, with the top 25 percent taking home six figures.
How can you become a sought-after Nurse Practitioner?
Becoming a Nurse Practitioner takes considerable schooling. You must become a Registered Nurse first before you can move on in the profession. This means you need a bachelor’s degree and you need to pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). From here, you have to receive your nurse practitioner degree, which can take from two to four years to earn. Additional certification is required to use the APRN title and board certification for your specialty (women’s health, pediatrics or neonatal, to name a few). You’ll also have to procure a state-specific license. The nurse practitioner field is changing and in some cases healthcare organizations and associations are now pushing for doctorate-level education.
What the future holds for a Nurse Practitioner.
Nursing is the largest healthcare profession with more than 2 million jobs. Overall, it's one of the 10 occupations projected to have the largest numbers of new jobs in the near future. Nurse practitioners are in high demand to provide health promotion, health maintenance and sick care services. According to the American Nurses Association, approximately 60 to 80 percent of primary and preventive care can be performed by nurse practitioners. The growing emphasis on prevention and public health will continue to create excellent job opportunities for NPs.
