Nurse Practitioners


Geographic location, experience, and specialty area of practice are all factors that influence salary levels for nurse practitioners. The U.S. Department of Labor reports the median annual income for nurse practitioners as $98,190 in 2015, with the lowest 10 percent earning less than $70,540 and the highest 10 percent earning more than $135,830. NPs, however, tend to earn more than this amount. According to the 2015 National Salary Survey of Nurse Practitioners conducted by ADVANCE for NPs & PAs, the average salary for NPs (all specialties) was $103,819. The survey also found that male NPs earned $13,728 more per year than their female counterparts.
