As a profession, nursing provides far more flexibility than many other careers. Nurses command respect in their communities and have always been held in high esteem as critical medical professionals. Nursing salaries in the market for both entry-level and experienced nurses reflect the value the market places on the crucial skills and knowledge that trained nurses possess.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for registered nurses (RNs) is expected to continue to grow faster than the average for all occupations. In fact, over the next 10 years, the number of RN positions is expected to increase 16%. This continued growth is expected to continue for a number of reasons. The factors driving the increase include increased emphasis on preventive care; the growing rates of chronic diseases, such as type diabetes and obesity; and the aging of the baby boomer generation who are living longer and more active lives.
