About nurse practitioner

Nurse Practitioner Jobs Overview

With a specialization in primary care, a nurse practitioner is qualified to manage 80 to 90% of a doctor's caseload. Nurse practitioners allow patients to get seen in half the time and spend twice the time talking about their concens as they would with a PCP. They are also more affordable for patients who are uninsured or on Medicaid. And with a growing shortage of medical doctors, nurse practitioner jobs are essential to the U.S. medical system.

In 28 states, nurse practitioners practice under the supervision of a physician. The remaining states allow full practice authority to nurse practitioners. They can examine and treat patients, order and interpret tests, and prescribe medication.

If you're looking for an NP position, you can start your search with healthcare jobs. If you have a particular practice area in mind, try a search in that specialty, such as:

Nurse Practitioner Education and Skills

The path to becoming a nurse practitioner usually starts with earning a bachelor's degree (BSN) in nursing. The next step is earning a master's degree or a doctorate in nursing before finally earning a license and board certification. Typical classes in a nurse practitioner curriculum include:

  • Advanced health assessment
  • Advanced pharmacology
  • Advanced physiology
  • Primary heathcare

Along with the education and clinical skills required to be a successful nurse practitioner, you'll also need several essential soft skills, including verbal and written communication, flexibility, collaboration, compassion, and listening. If you'd like to learn more, read through our typical job description for a nurse practitioner.

Update Your Nurse Practitioner Resume

Your resume has gone through some changes since you were an RN—we've got some ideas to help you add information or start from scratch. Of course you'll want to include your additional coursework and credentials. If you want to specialize in one area of practice, like geriatrics, be sure to include any special classes or experience you have in that area. To emphasize you have advanced experience with patients, list your clinical placements and the number of hours you completed during each round.

For more information, check out our career advice library includes sample resumes and resume writing tips, including these resume templates specifically for nursing jobs. When you find a job you'd like to apply for, we can help you with cover letter samples and cover letter tips. Go beyond the facts on your cover letter by including a statement about your thoughts on the future of healthcare or what you enjoyed about your path to becoming an NP.

Interviewing for a Nurse Practitioner Job

When it's time to interview for that job, Monster can help you prepare. You can practice answering common interview questions and look through our collection of interview tips. You might also want to read a Monster article about questions you should ask during a nursing interview to ensure the job is the right fit for you.

How Much Do Nurse Practitioner Jobs Pay?

Because they perform many of the same duties as PCPs, nurse practitioners are looking at a six-figure salary. In fact, the median salary for a nurse practitioner in the U.S. is $103,155. Monster's Salary Tools will give you the heads-up on what nurse practitioners are paid in your area. You'll also see what areas have a high demand for nurse practitioners and potential next steps in your career.

Want to Learn More About a Company You're Interested In?

When you've come this far, you want to make sure you feel like your job is a good fit. Our company profiles give you a glimpse into organizations with information like:

  • Office locations, headquarters, and the number of employees.
  • Their mission statement.
  • Benefits they offer employees.
