Delaware Nursing Schools

A Family Nurse Practitioner provides medical care to a full range of patients, from children to the elderly. They are trained and educated in a variety of fields and are expected to experience tremendous job growth in the coming years. There are several benefits of becoming a family nurse practitioner in the US, such as the ability to develop a vast skillset that deals with numerous illnesses in a full range of patients. Therefore, it is ideal for nurses who do not want to limit their exposure to a specific age bracket or specialty. Another advantage of becoming a FNP is that they have direct control over patient relationships and operations. In addition to that, they have a high salary and positive job growth.

(1) Estimates for detailed occupations do not sum to the totals because the totals include occupations not shown separately. Estimates do not include self-employed workers.

(2) Annual wages have been calculated by multiplying the hourly mean wage by a “year-round, full-time” hours figure of 2,080 hours; for those occupations where there is not an hourly wage published, the annual wage has been directly calculated from the reported survey data.

(9) The location quotient is the ratio of the area concentration of occupational employment to the national average concentration. A location quotient greater than one indicates the occupation has a higher share of employment than average, and a location quotient less than one indicates the occupation is less prevalent in the area than average.
