4 Quick Facts About Nursing

The nursing profession is, by far, the largest health care profession. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in the nursing field will grow faster than any other profession through 2018. If you are thinking of a career as an RN, here are 4 quick facts about nursing that may surprise you.


The U.S. Nursing Shortage is Expected to Grow Over the Next Decade

Although the current nursing shortage has been eased because of the recession, it is expected to grow over the next decade. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Employment Projections 2010-2020 released in February 2012, the number of employed nurses will grow from 2.74 million to 3.45 million in 2020, an increase of 712,000 or 26%.  In addition, replacements within the current nursing workforce will account for approximately 495,000 more openings for a total or 1.2 million nurses needed over the next decade.

Women Still Outnumber Men in the Nursing Profession

However, the number of male nurses continues to grow.  In fact, since 1980, men have gone from only 3% of professional nurses to almost 10% in 2014.  In the 21st century, nursing is no longer a "woman's" profession.


The RN Field Offers the Most Jobs in the Healthcare Industry

The nursing profession offers more job opportunities than any other field in the healthcare industry. There are more than 3.1 million registered nurses practicing in the United States. This is a 5.3 increase from the US Department of Health and Human Services’ statistics in 2004. With the nursing shortage expected to grow in the next decade, job opportunities will continue to flourish for competent nursing professionals.

3 Out of 5 RN Jobs Are in Hospitals

RNs are often associated with hospitals, but only three out of five RNs work in a hospital setting. Nurses are also needed in home care, research labs, schools, the military, nursing homes, private companies, social agencies, correctional facilities – the list is endless! Today’s nurses are working in a variety of different settings, which is a big part of the reason why there are so many nursing employment opportunities available.
