Adult Health Nurse Practitioner Careers + Salary Basics

The following page shows the career & education requirements, salary and job outlook for a Adult Health Nurse Practitioner around the country.

What We Do

As an Adult Health Nurse Practitioner or Adult Nurse Practitioner (ANP), your goal will be to provide adults with primary healthcare. Patients are aged from 12 to seniority. Hence, there is often an overlap with other nurse practitioner jobs. An ANP is classed as a generalist, and there is a particularly high demand for them in under-served areas. Your role will be to diagnose, evaluate, and manage acute, common, and chronic health issues in patients. Additionally, you will have to educate them on disease prevention and healthy lifestyle. You can also take further specializations to better fit the community in which you work.

Work Environment

ANPs can work in any type of health setting, including hospitals and private clinics. The vast majority, however, work within the community, directly with their patients.

How to Become a Adult Health Nurse Practitioner

To become an ANP, you must first complete the BSN (bachelor of science in nursing) degree program, followed by the MSN (master of science in nursing). After completing this, you will have to pass the certification examination offered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center or the American Academy of Nurse Practitioner Certification Program. If a school offers an ANP program, they will usually structure them as an adult and gerontology combination. This is in line with the new requirements of the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse Consensus Model as developed by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. Some schools also offer specializations within this, however.

Training & Certification Requirements

The Adult-Gerontology Primary Care NP certification is offered by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Program. This is available for RNs (registered nurses) who have a current, active license in this country and who complete an accredited graduate or post-graduate degree. They must also complete 500 hours of supervised clinical practice and numerous advanced courses. Nurses can also receive the ANP-BC by citing the examination offered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. To be eligible, they must meet the same requirements as above, as well as graduate from a program that is CCNE or NLNAC accredited, as well as have a set amount of clinical hours, advanced courses, and relevant subject matter. Every five years, ANPs must recertify, as well as demonstrate continuous professional development.
