Nurse Practitioner Specialties

The first nurse practitioners earned their degree in 1965, the new profession was created in response to a country-wide shortage of physicians.  Since that time, nurse practitioner programs have been established throughout the country producing nearly 9,000 new NPs every year and joining the 140,000 population of practicing NPs.

Much like in other medical fields, upon earning their degree, nurse practitioners may choose to enter a specialty nurse practitioner program.  These programs are offered throughout the country at a number of locations.
