If you can even imagine in today’s economy, combined with having nearly three million working nurses in the united states alone, it is OK (and just) to assume that the health industry is booming! There is no doubt about this. What makes this even a more crazy scenario is that even with two some million working nurses out there, there is still an extreme shortage. There is a real need for more.
Because of the continued growth of the industry, and the need to fill spots. You can imagine that they may glorify some areas if you are skilled in them. You will find very competitive wages out there, and wonderful benefit packages. Most employers will want to make it look better for you so that you will want to go work for them. Especially if you are educated and trained and ready to work.
What is great about the nursing career is that it can be very diversified. You can go into almost any branch, and there are some that you probably never even knew existed. You can work with old people, kids, dead people (forensics), you can administer drugs, or even be a physicians assistant, where you are practically a doctor, you just need one supervising you.
Just think of all the possibilities. With nursing you can get started in as little as a year. Once you are established, you can continue to take classes and broaden your learning experience and go into different fields. The more qualified you are the more in need you are going to be and the bigger your paycheck will be.
So you will be making money in a field that is desperate for help that is growing every day. At the same time you will be able to make a difference in people lives. When you start you will find that you have to do your school, then you will also have to have a certain amount of clinical experience. So you may have to volunteer somewhere or work for very little money while you are getting your hands on experience. Some people find it grueling and can not make it through it. But if it is in your heart to help people and have a steady in need job, then this is for you.
It was not even 10 years ago that you could not find a job in the health care field if you wanted to because it just was not as needed. Now there is an incredible demand, and you can find almost any position anywhere that is needing a nurse of some sort for some field. You can even find companies that will train you and pay for your school, provided they have your commitment to work for them. You can find just about any job in the health care industry that you want.
