Utah, like the rest of the nation, needs more primary healthcare providers, especially as the number of insured residents changes along with healthcare reform and the individual mandate for coverage takes effect. The state currently has 1670 NPs practicing, earning a mean annual salary of $83,880 according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (2012).

Many nurse practitioners work full-time, with a majority of time spent providing direct patient care. NP specialties include family care, pediatrics and adult health. With a strong background in clinical skills, assessment and care planning, nurses who transition into advanced practice bring valuable knowledge to their practice as NPs. If you are ready to take the steps to expand your nursing career, becoming a Nurse Practitioner is a great idea.

We have taken the time to compile a list of all the programs available to Utah nurses who wish to become nurse practitioners. You can choose an online program, such as the one offered by Georgetown University, or study at an in-state institution. We suggest that you request information from as many schools as you like, amassing a good deal of information before you make a decision. NP programs for Utah nurses include:

  • Brigham Young University. BYU is the largest private school in the nation. It offers a master's-level family nurse practitioner program. Most students complete the program in three years.
  • University of Utah. The University of Utah offers BSN-to-DNP nurse practitioner programs such as: adult/gerontology, family and pediatrics. By 2015, a DNP degree will be the minimal degree required for entry to practice as a nurse practitioner.
  • Westminster College. Westminster, located in Salt Lake City, offers a family nurse practitioner program that's friendly to working nurses. Classes are only scheduled one to two days per week, and typically meet in the afternoon and evening.
