Employers of Nursing majors in CA

Nurse anesthetists, nurse midwives, and nurse practitioners, also referred to as advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), provide and coordinate patient care and they may provide primary and specialty health care. The scope of practice varies from state to state. Nurse anesthetists, nurse midwives, and nurse practitioners work in a wide variety of healthcare settings, including hospitals, physicians' offices, nursing care facilities, schools, and clinics. Nurse anesthetists, nurse midwives, and nurse practitioners must earn at least a master’s degree in one of the APRN roles. They must also be licensed in their state and pass a national certification exam. The median annual wage for nurse anesthetists, nurse midwives, and nurse practitioners was $96,460 in May 2012. Employment of nurse anesthetists, nurse midwives, and nurse practitioners is expected to grow 31 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. Growth will occur primarily because of the effects of healthcare legislation, an increased emphasis on preventative care, and demand from the large, aging baby-boom population for healthcare services as they live longer and more active lives than previous generations.
