It’s a fact! There are more jobs available in nursing than any other profession. More than 100,000 new RN, nursing aides and caregiver jobs are being added per year. And more than 500,000 RNs are predicted to retire by 2022. The bottom line… there will be a need for 1.1 million new nurses, as projected by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, for expansion and the replacement of retirees, and to avoid a nursing shortage.
More than a year since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the U.S. job growth has picked up in May, along with worker pay. NJ.com reports that nurse practitioners are the second fastest growing job market nationally and in New Jersey.
ACCESS Nursing Services has a multitude of job opportunities for RNs, LPNs, and AIDES throughout New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. Here are some key reasons why nursing and caregiving will continue to grow and why now is the perfect time to find a new nursing job.
- Increased Emphasis on Preventive Care: Preventative care can halt the onset or progression of serious diseases. Annual check-ups, immunizations, as well as tests and screenings are all examples of regular preventative care.
- Increased Care for Chronic Conditions: Caring for people with chronic conditions often requires specialized care. Nurses and caregivers with clinical specializations are needed to care for patients from hospital to home to ensure that the recovery process runs smoothly and that patient safety is always a priority.
- Demand for healthcare services from Aging Baby Boomers: As this group leads longer and more active lives, there is an increased need for at-home nursing services, testing, and private duty nursing services to ensure that these individuals stay healthy as they age.
