The High Demand of Nursing

  1. 1. The High Demand ofNursing<br />By: Tori Benner<br />
  2. 2. Questionable for entering a recession, nobody knows what will happen to our economy. The stocks are constantly rising and dropping. People go to work each day wondering if they will even go home with a job. <br /> “According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the nursing field is expected to grow by 22 percent through 2010, a pace that is much faster than the average for all professions”.<br />
  3. 3. “The U.S. Department of Labor projects an increased need of 21% for nurses nationwide for the decade 1998-2008 as compared to only 14% for all other occupations. <br />As a result, a Registered Nurse shortage of about 6% in the year 2000 is expected to reach 29% by 2020. Factors contributing to the demand for RNs include an expected increase of 18% in the general population, the aging of the “baby boomer” generation, and medical advances requiring skilled nursing care. “<br /><br />
  4. 4. Did you know that by the year 2020, there will be an estimated shortage of 800,000 nurses? With the world population living longer and needing more care, the healthcare field is one of the best places to get a job, and will likely stay that way for many years to come.<br />

  6. 6. A: “While all types of nurses will experience a demand for their expertise, there will be a need for some specializations more than others. Among them is a nursing specialty that concerns the life-or-death decisions of patient care: critical care nursing”.<br /><br />
