"Nurse Practitioners More In Demand Than Most Physicians" says Bruce Japsen via Forbes Magazine.

Japsen writes  "...climbing the ranks and jumping past many doctor specialties on the demand scale aren’t physicians at all. They’re nurse practitioners and physician assistants who are filling a critical role for the health care industry, according to national doctor recruiting firm Merritt Hawkins....Four years ago, neither NPs or PAs were among (the firm’s) top 20 assignments either collectively or individually.  On their own, nurse practitioners ranked fifth behind hospitalists who were fourth and physician assistants were in 10th place, tied on the “in demand” scale with general surgeons. Advanced practitioners are more in demand than several specialties including general surgery, cardiology, urology and neurology."
