Licensed nurses constitute the single largest occupation in the health care industry. The majority of licensed nurses work in hospitals; though nurses also practice in a variety of other settings, including homes, schools, clinics, physicians’ offices, long-term care facilities, and public health agencies.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports employment among Registered Nurses (RNs) will grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2018. And in particular that means upward pressure on RN salaries despite economic downturns. Demand for quality nurses continues to rise due to the increase in the median age of the U.S. population.
