Re: Writing a program to hunt for a prime between n^2 and (n+1)^2

My program, which is not fancy:

NRange = Flatten[{n, Range[10, 20, 1]}]

NSquared = Flatten[NRange^2]

NPlus1Squared = Flatten[(NRange+1)^2]

FirstPrimeGreaterNSquared=Flatten[{"Prime>n^2",Table[NestWhile[#1+1&,n^2,!(P
rimeQ[#1])&],{n,10,20}]}]

{NRange, NSquared, FirstPrimeGreaterNSquared, NPlus1Squared} // TableForm

Are there ideas to make this more snazzy, and accomplish the same thing?

Thanks,

Diana
