The Ultimate Nurse Practitioner Guidebook: A Comprehensive Guide to Getting Into and Surviving Nurse Practitioner School, Finding a Job, and Understanding the Policy That Drives the Profession will help you pursue your career as a nurse practitioner and succeed. The nurse practitioner (NP) profession is one of the most rapidly growing medical professions in the United States. With the passing of the Affordable Care Act, millions of Americans have become insured, with NPs filling the gap and providing affordable access to care. NPs work in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, and have complete autonomy in many of them. Nurse practitioners write prescriptions, order labs and tests, see patients of all ages and in a wide variety of settings, all while providing excellent patient care. The Ultimate Nurse Practitioner Guidebook aims to help anyone who is thinking about becoming a nurse practitioner figure out whether it is the right path for them. In this book, readers will learn about the profession, how to choose a school and program, how to get into and survive school, as well as life after graduation. This book is a must-read for those who are interested in attending nurse practitioner school, current nurse practitioner students and practicing nurse practitioners.
