Seven out of the top ten careers are healthcare-related roles. Interesting! However, the article is still touting those rosy BLS predictions about the projected 20 percent growth in nursing jobs between 2012 and 2022. I will not hold my breath waiting for this prediction to come true.
Mathematically, I still think there will be an increase in demand for nurses in the next 20 years simply due to the age of the workforce.
I am a bit more optimistic about nursing's role in the future of healthcare in the country. I honestly believe that nurses are best positioned to change the locus of healthcare from reactive to proactive and from tertiary to primary settings.
