Why should you become a nurse? Nurses are in demand and will be for many years to come due to a shortage of nurses as well as an increasing demand for more nurses.
As the population ages and grows, the demand for health care is growing. Health care careers will continue to top the list of fastest growing professions well into the next decade.
Registered nurses will be among the top of that list. This means job security, and nurses will be able to demand higher salaries and better benefits for many years to come.
