Careers in Nursing

Nursing is one of the fastest-growing occupations 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 many 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.

Recent nursing school grads enjoy some of the highest starting salaries among their peers in other industries. Most of these nurses work in doctors’ offices, hospitals and outpatient facilities. Join us as our guests discuss their educational background, required training, skills and day-to-day responsibilities.
