which runs from Nov. 11-17 2012. Hosted by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners : ctt.marketwire.com/?release=952902&id=2270278&type=1& ..
, this annual event raises awareness of the importance of nurse practitioners, who act as healthcare providers for millions of patients and increasingly serve as a solution to the national primary care physician shortage. Today there are more than 155,000 nurse practitioners providing care in the U.S.
In honor of National NP Week, HeCN released a Nurse Practitioner Employment Fact Sheet : ctt.marketwire.com/?release=952902&id=2270281&type=1& ..
, which supports the rising trend of healthcare providers turning to nurse practitioners in an effort to offset the ongoing physician shortage without sacrificing patient care. Among other findings, the Fact Sheet reveals that general nurse practitioners jobs : ctt.marketwire.com/?release=952902&id=2270284&type=1& ..
increased by 128 percent since 2011.
HeCN is also donating $1 to the AANP for every re-tweet of the Nurse Practitioner Employment Fact Sheet during National NP Week. Those interested in driving donations should use #DONATE2AANP in their tweets.
"Nurse practitioners are licensed, expert clinicians with advanced education, making them a sound hiring choice for hospitals looking to ramp up staff and maintain high quality care," said Tricia Pattee, director of product management, HEALTHeCAREERS
Network. "We are very proud to be part of a national effort to recognize this growing profession that fulfills a critical role in providing primary, acute and specialty healthcare."
