Nurse practitioners, or NPs, rank as one of the fastest growing health-care professions. The United States has taken in lead in nurturing this profession but other countries have jumped on the wagon including Canada.
The meteoric rise in NP's is fueled in part by the world's aging population, the desire to curb rising medical costs as well as dealing with the worsening primary care physician shortage.
NP's have also expanded outside their traditional roles specializing into various fields including emergency, pediatrics, palliative and cancer care. Bar none, this is a special place for the second most respected profession...nursing practitioners, sorry nurses are first.
