Many of today’s hottest careers are in the health-care field, with career opportunities and personal satisfaction unmatched by other professions. The nursing field, in particular, has huge demand and increasing shortages of qualified and licensed professionals. With an aging population of baby boomers and about one-third of all registered nurses projected to retire in the next 15 years, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that 1.2 million jobs for registered nurses are expected to open before 2022.

The job pays well, usually offers great benefits, and often offers a flexible schedule. There are many opportunities for advancement, every day is different, and the field offers excellent job security. In addition, with direct patient interaction, you can feel like you are making a big difference in your patients’ well-being.
