Clinical Nurse Specialists
Employment opportunities for advanced practice nurses, including clinical nurse specialists, are expected to be strong through 2020. In recent years, the demand for APNs has far outweighed the supply. The federal government has predicted increasing shortages in the field for the next several years, and advanced practice nurses with the proper credentials and certification should have no trouble finding posts in a wide variety of health care facilities. Opportunities will be strongest in inner cities and rural areas.
