Nurse Practitioner Careers Offer Greater Earning Potential

Nurse Practitioners are In Demand

Demand for Nurse Practitioners (NPs) is far greater than the supply, putting NPs in demand across the state. The Texas Center for Nursing Workforce Studies estimates that Texas needs more than 4,580 new NPs to fill today’s job opportunities. At only 4%* of the RN workforce in Texas, NPs are on the rise and answering the needs of our aging population and changing healthcare environment. NPs enjoy a range of healthcare environments and types of roles, offering you long-term flexibility to shape your career on your own terms.
