For nearly a half-century, nurse practitioners across the United States have provided comprehensive, cost-effective, patient-centered services to millions of Americans in need of primary, acute, and specialty healthcare services. Currently, there are 148,000 NPs practicing in the US with an estimated 9,500 new NPs completing their academic programs in 2010-2011. According to Penny Kaye Jensen, DNP, APRN, FNP-C, FAANP, president of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners:
“Nurse practitioners have a proven track record of success, and research has shown that they provide high-quality primary care with outcomes that are similar to, or even better than, primary care physicians.”
