TRENDS IN NURSING
Did you know that by the year 2020, there will be an estimated shortage of 800,000 nurses?
The job market for nurses is growing and thriving as the shortage of qualified nurses continues to place pressure on the healthcare industry. This projected shortage will remain an issue for years to come as a large number of baby boom nurses begin to retire starting in 2011. According to a 2006 American Hospital Association report, hospitals need approximately 118,000 registered nurses to fill current vacant positions nationwide.
With nursing colleges and universities across the country looking to expand enrollment levels, now is an excellent time to consider nursing as a profession. According to the US Department of Labor, by 2014, both registered nurse and licensed practical nurse employment opportunities will grow 29% and 17% respectively. Nursing salaries are rising as well. The most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics data reports the annual median income of registered nurses is now topping $50,000 and hourly rates can range from $25-$32 depending on geographic location.
A registered nurse (RN) completes a four-year education earning a bachelor of science in nursing, (BSN). A BSN degree prepares nurses to practice across all health care settings. This higher level of training and education provides registered nurses with the greatest opportunity for advancement. With RNs in hot demand, many hospitals and facilities are paying signing bonuses and are offering tuition repayment incentives and relocation assistance to qualified candidates.
Licensed practical nurses are also in demand. A LPN typically completes a one-year training program at a technical or vocational school. Under the direction of a physician and/or registered nurse, a licensed practical nurse provides essential basic care, which includes taking vital signs, applying dressings, monitoring catheters, and assisting with patient hygiene. LPN’s typically earn about $15,000 less than registered nurses. LPN’s working within a hospital setting will find employers willing to pay for continuing education to help LPN’s earn their BSN degree.
Nursing is a diverse profession with opportunities to specialize in multiple areas, such as critical care, labor and delivery, cardiac care, pediatrics, and nursing management to name a few. Along with professional diversity, nursing jobs are also very flexible. You can work where and when you want with many options for full or part-time positions. The growing field of travel nursing provides variety and flexibility in return for temporary positions in an on-call setting. Travelling nursing jobs appeal to professionals who want to combine adventure, flexibility, and financial reward to their mix of experience. There are many healthcare recruiting companies who work exclusively in the travel nursing sector.
With so many varied and challenging positions plus opportunities for continual growth, it’s easy to see why nursing is truly one of the most rewarding and fulfilling professions out there. Now is a great time to become a nurse!
