MSN-NP Careers & Outcomes

Completing your degree from an online BSN to MSN-NP program will set you up for a rewarding career. NPs can prescribe medication, examine patients, diagnose illnesses, and provide treatment, similar to physicians.

NPs are increasingly becoming integral to medical teams as more and more hospitals and healthcare facilities utilize their expertise.

In some states, nurse practitioners can work independently. NPs may work in:

  • Physician offices
  • Outpatient care centers
  • Surgical hospitals
  • Home health care organizations
  • Private practice

The median annual wage is $107,460* for Nurse Practitioners (60% higher than RNs).
