Few other types of professionals are experiencing quite as high of demand as nurse practitioners. By 2031, 112,700 advanced practice nurse roles are expected to be added to the U.S. economy, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s a 46% increase from 2021. People seeking a more flexible way to earn the credentials to fill nurse practitioner roles may be in the market for an online master’s degree in nursing—that’s why Fortune has ranked the best online nurse practitioner programs for 2023. The methodology for this ranking was the same as that of our best online master’s in nursing (MSN) programs ranking. For this list, we used data submitted only by nursing schools with nurse practitioner concentrations.
