Deciding on a career path is tough, there are so many choices. Even when youâ€™ve narrowed it down to a field like healthcare, the options can still be overwhelming.Â And while the final decision is in your hands, you want to choose a career that has solid job stability and growth for the future. Nursing offers you just that and so much more.
Nursing is ranked as one of the top ten jobs for the future by Kiplinger. Really, itâ€™s no surprise â€“ with the baby boomers rapidly aging out of the workforce leaving a large hole to fill. Not only that, but with an aging population and the affordable care act, thereâ€™s an even bigger call for healthcare professionals.
According to Kiplinger, â€œThe outlook for RNs is healthy. This already robust workforce â€“ the fifth-largest of all occupations â€“ is expected to add nearly 450,000 new positions by 2024. Advancing technology, greater focus on preventive care and an aging population will mean a growing number of patients requiring care in hospitals, doctorsâ€™ offices, long-term-care facilities and even private homes.â€
With a current total of 2.7 million jobs, projected job growth of 16.6% between 2014 and 2024, and a median annual salary of $66,060, nursingâ€™s future looks bright.
If youâ€™re considering a future in nursing â€“ do so knowing that your choice is a sound one.Â Itâ€™s hard to beat the possibilities of a career field with such a bright future.
