Health Care Jobs

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that over the next ten years, nursing will have the largest job growth of any occupation. There currently is a critical shortage of nurses nationwide, forcing many areas to import nurses from countries such as Canada and the Philippines.


Nurses also are well paid: the nationwide average is $45,500. Bonuses typically are offered for night and weekend shifts, and for critical care areas. With a Master's Degree a nurse typically earns $62,000 and with a Ph.D., $72,000.
And there's more good news if you are thinking about getting into the nursing profession: the current nursing workforce is aging. Retirements in the next ten years will further increase demand.


Nursing jobs will be available across the nation. Forty four states, plus the District of Columbia predict severe nursing shortages in the next 15 years.
