How Do I Become a Nurse Practitioner?


Most people work for several years as a registered nurse before becoming a nurse practitioner. Being an RN is a prerequisite for acceptance into most nurse practitioner training programs. NP programs usually fall into two different types: those that result in a Master’s degree and others that result in a doctorate degree. Upon completing one of these programs the individual must obtain a nurse practitioner license from the state in which they choose to practice. Most nurse practitioners eventually choose to specialize in one particular field of study within the medical profession. This type of specialization often requires additional training and certification.
