Nurse practitioners are registered nurses with additional education. Extra schooling allows these professionals to take patient histories, perform physical exams, order labs, analyze lab results, prescribe medicines, authorize treatments and educate patients and families on continued care. They, also known as advanced practice registered nurses, specialize by patient population, training to work in areas like women’s health or pediatrics. They may also work in research or academia. Many nurse practitioners first worked as registered nurses where their treatment of patients extended to holistic and wellness care, and a nurse practitioner brings that background to his or her diagnosis, treatment and management of medical issues. 52.2 % employment is growth for nurse practitioners between 2020 and 2030. In that period, an estimated 114,900 jobs should open up.

Registered nurses are responsible for monitoring a patient’s condition, performing medical procedures and administering medicine. They also chart a patient’s progress. These professionals work with a range of patients, from those who are healthy (and are proactively trying to stay that way), to those who are pregnant and bringing new life, to those who are nearing the end of life and hoping for a peaceful death. Today, nursing research is just one of the exciting changes in the field. Increasingly, evidence-based science is confirming the contributions nurses make to patient care. 9.0 % employment is growth for registered nurses between 2020 and 2030 with an estimated 276,800 jobs opened up.
