"Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics is starting to reflect this same trend, and for the first time since 2004, hospitals have posted a net loss of jobs. However, there's no need to panic: the loss added up to 700 fewer workers across all hospital jobs. This is a small number compared to the 4.71 million total people employed by hospitals across the country. Also, it is important to note that there are 110,800 more hospital jobs now compared to one year ago. Thus, this sector of health care is still adding positions, just not at quite as fast a rate as before."
This article points out there that nursing jobs are still on the rise...as long as you don't want to work in a hospital....they tried to get it right, but they really didn't.....
