THE BIG PICTURE

The U.S. is predicted to add 438,100 new nursing jobs by 2026. Increased emphasis on preventive and patient care, growing rates of chronic conditions (such as diabetes and obesity), and demand for healthcare services from the aging baby boomer population mean that demand for nursing is growing dramatically. In response, employers are making nursing jobs more inviting to attract much-needed talent.
