A nurse practitioner, or NP, can work in a wide variety of healthcare environments, including hospitals, nursing and rehabilitation centers, private practices, and much more.

Becoming an NP requires dedication, as you’ll need to earn a master’s or doctorate degree from an accredited school.

You also should have experience working in healthcare before pursuing this advanced training. The professional rewards are well worth it, as an NP can start their own practice, or seek employment in a range of healthcare settings.

If you’re looking for career advancement and a challenge, consider becoming a nurse practitioner.
