NPs have greater control over their professional practice and patient outcomes and may benefit from competitive salaries. Many NPs practice independently in some states with prescriptive authority and are being granted more autonomy nationwide.
Additionally, the health care industry is facing a nationwide shortage of physicians and a rising need for acute care, particularly throughout the pandemic. Preparing to become an NP helps nurses hone their skills to deliver the best patient care and outcomes in an industry that continually emphasizes the need to attain ongoing and advanced education.
