    Nurse Anesthetists, Nurse Midwives, and Nurse Practitioners

    Job Outlook

    Employment of nurse anesthetists, nurse midwives, and nurse practitioners is projected to grow 31 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.

    Trump's federal budget would eliminate dozens of agencies and programs


    ... Department of Health and Human Services

    Health professions and nursing training programs ($403 million): Trump's budget says these programs "lack evidence that they significantly improve the nation's health workforce."
