If you are considering entering into education in 2017, one field of study that is definitely worth considering is nursing.
According to an infographic by Maryville University, the nursing field is expected to grow by 20% in the next five years. This pretty much guarantees anyone graduating with a nursing degree the chance to walk straight into a full time job.
While the majority of nurses work in hospitals, you can also find positions in care homes, the government, doctors’ offices, home health, schools, and correctional facilities among others. The annual wage for a registered nurse is between $40,000 and $80,000, with this increasing should you choose to take further education to specialize.
There has never been a better time to enter into nursing education, and with the current nursing shortage, it’s something anyone thinking about studying should consider.
