People are living longer, healthier lives. And that’s good news for nurses.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for nurses will rise faster than almost any other occupation in the next several years. Coupled with an increasing, global demand for healthcare services to provide critical care for an ageing population, the job market is attractive for new nurses, and especially those who want to grow professionally.
As the healthcare system grows increasingly complex, specialized nurses with advanced nursing degrees are often in much higher demand. These educationally prepared nurses are finding opportunities to boost their careers – and their paychecks.
