Nurse Practitioners

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts employment for registered nurses to grow much faster than the average through 2022, and the job outlook for nurse practitioners is especially good. One reason for this is that the nurse practitioner is increasingly being recognized as a provider of the high-quality yet cost-effective medical care that the nation's health care system needs. In addition, more and more people are recognizing the importance of preventive health care, which is one of the nurse practitioner's greatest strengths. There should be an especially strong demand for gerontological nurse practitioners as the percentage of the U.S population in the over-65 age group increases.
