The only thing Forbes has to do with the linked piece is hosting the writer's blog
. And the blog post hosted doesn't present any real claims other than to repeat statements made by an Exec at a job search
website that claim they has lots of ads for nursing positions.
The DoL's Bureau of Labor Statistics supports the idea that nursing is a promising field
and even points out that job growth in hospitals is slower than other areas of nursing.
There are a lot of jobs out there, there are a lot of areas of critical shortage. That a nurse doesn't get hired because they lack the requisite level of education or experience doesn't mean there aren't jobs. The warm body approach to filling position always sounds good when you're the one who thinks you're entitled to a job, those who have to work along side those warm bodies may see it a whole lot differently.
And I'm really tired of "99%ers" blindly parroting the party line without actually doing any research (or think) for themselves weaken the message.
