One of the careers I’m thinking of pursuing is called a Nurse Practitioner, or an APRN (Advanced Practice Registered Nurse).

Three significant and basic points for a nurse practitioner are:

1) Nurse practitioners can prescribe medicines by earning a license that is accepted in all 50 states, 2) All nurse practitioners all have master’s degrees, or even doctorate degrees, along with clinical training and advanced medical education, and 3) It is known that patients who have practitioners as their nurses visit the emergency room less often and have shorter hospital stays, resulting in lower out-of-pocket costs.

All points of fact are from the website www.comphealth.com, article title called “11 Facts about Nurse Practitioners.“

EDUCATION AND LICENSURE

As said in the previous section, the requirement for becoming a nurse practitioner is to have an MSN (Master of Science and Nursing) or a DNP (Doctor of Nursing Practice). Most NPs start off as regular registered nurses. Once the required degree is earned, it is nationally accepted but through different states, it can vary; in one state, the nurse practitioner can work independently while in another, the NP will need another nurse practitioner or doctor to supervise her or collaborate with her. In order to achieve the essential degree, it can be through online or on-campus options.

EMPLOYMENT, JOB OUTLOOK, AND EARNINGS

Nurses Practitioners can work in a variety of environments, such as: hospitals, acute care, and ambulatory care settings (citing from www.innerbody.com). Although NPs can work practically anywhere in the healthcare industry, the job outlook also varies within each state and region. In New York, there are about 10,310 nurse practitioners employed while in Columbus, IN, the average annual salary for NPs are $146,450. Basically speaking, in both New York and Indiana, there is a large amount of competition for employment and money. The average amount of money that nurse practitioners receive per year is: $97,990.
