Family Nurse Practitioner Salaries in Missouri - MO

Family nurse practitioner salaries in Missouri are dependent on the experience and background of the nurse practitioner as well as the geographic location of the employment setting and the type of facility in which the practitioner works. In general, salaries are higher in larger cities and metropolitan areas than they are in rural areas. Hospitals, clinics, physician offices, schools, long-term care facilities and governmental agencies are all potential employers of family nurse practitioners. Because nurse practitioners can serve as primary care providers, they work well in rural and medically underserved areas, as well as fill a niche in hospitals and larger health care facilities as part of a larger health care team. Family nurse practitioners are mid-level health care providers who are capable of a greater scope of care than registered nurses, but typically provide more individualized patient care than is possible for a doctor.
