Meet the Growing Demand for Nurse Practitioners
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the employment of nurse practitioners, nurse anesthetists, and nurse midwives is projected to grow 45% from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations. With an aging population on the rise in the U.S., demand for preventive care is also on the rise.
