Nursing is the fastest-growing occupation in the US. Nurses make up the majority of the healthcare industry, and that number’s going up, with 581,500 more nursing jobs by 2018. Why? There are a lot of reasons, including an aging population and a shrinking nursing workforce.
Few professions give you as many choices of where to work, areas to specialize in, or degrees to use. The range of nursing specialties is almost as varied as the personalities of the nurses themselves, so no matter what kind of person you are, there’s a place in nursing for you.
