Now, 50 years later, nurse practitioner programs graduated approximately 17,000 students in the 2013-2014 academic year. There are more than 205,000 nurse practitioners licensed to practice in the United States, and nurse practitioners now have full practice authority in 21 states and the District of Columbia.” (Photo courtesy of the College of Nursing and Health Care Professions)
