What To Expect From The Future Of Nursing Jobs

Forecasts suggest nursing careers will explode in the coming years, the result of an aging Baby Boomer generation and turnover in the industry from its own retirees.


Look no further than Bureau of Labor Statistics projections to see the expected growth: Registered Nurse hiring is expected to jump 16% by 2024. Hiring of Nurse Practitioners is expected to increase a remarkable 31%.

But as nursing opportunities grow, the question then becomes where will these jobs be, and how will they evolve?

Certainly technology plays a part in the change of the nursing landscape, in everything from patient records to treatment. Staying up-to-date on technological trends in the industry is essential, and many of the job listings in the CareerCast Nursing Network database include descriptions of pertinent skills -- tech or otherwise.

But where will the jobs be? That's a big question, with some regions having more openings than candidates, and vice versa in other places.

Healthcare economist Peter Buerhaus told Dow Jones Business:

[C]olleagues forecast greater shortages in New England and along the West Coast in coming years. In Pennsylvania, Florida and Nebraska, the proliferation of new nursing jobs outside of hospitals has helped strain supply, say several hospital operators. In Iowa, surging demand for hospital care has outstripped the labor market. In Texas, hospitals cannot hire fast enough to match population growth.
