According to the US Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistic, nurse practitioners earned a median pay of $107,460 in 2016 in a field projected to grow 31 percent from 2014 to 2024. In the realm of neonatal advanced practice nursing, salaries are typically far in excess of other nurse practitioner specialization areas, and the national market needs are significant. Most importantly, neonatal advanced practice roles provide nurses with an opportunity to make significant contributions to patient care and population outcomes for the tiniest and most vulnerable of patients.

The University of Connecticut’s Neonatal Nurse Practitioner (NNP) Online Program prepares students for Neonatal Nursing careers in these rapidly growing fields.
