Nurse Practictioner Salary & Options
This rewarding field has professional options to fit your lifestyle needs. The salary range for adult gerontology nurse practitioners is $65,000-100,000. Openings will continue to grow for employment in primary care settings, acute care hospitals, hospice and palliative care, and (depending on the state) private independent practices. Dr. Joan Nelson of the nursing faculty is a test writer for the national certifying organization for nurse practitioners. She reports test writers have been incorporating expanded gerontological material in the GNP and ANP exams, to take effect beginning January 2013. Graduates of CU’s programs will be fully prepared to meet all geriatric competency requirements and be eligible to sit for these new certification exams.
