Job Growth Rate for Nurses in 2012 Increases Beyond Estimates
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in March, 2012, that job growth in the healthcare sector was growing at a faster rate than earlier predicted.
New healthcare jobs in 2011 were reported at 296,900, while in January and February of 2012, almost 100,000 new healthcare jobs were created.
As Registered Nurses comprise the largest segment of the healthcare industry, jobs for RNs and other nurses are expected to increase beyond 2011 expectations.
With the actual growth of the healthcare sector outpacing the 2011 predictions, now is the time to consider a career in nursing. Nursing is a rewarding career choice that presents plenty of opportunity for growth and advancement, as well as job security, competitive wages and personal fulfillment. Nurses work in hospitals, clinics, schools, long-term care facilities and as consultants, educators and researchers, as well as providing direct care to patients of all ages.
