According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for healthcare services is expected to continue to increase over the next ten years because of the aging population, given that older people typically have more medical problems than younger people. In addition, growth is also expected to be faster than average in outpatient care centers, where patients do not stay overnight, such as those which provide same-day chemotherapy, rehabilitation, and surgery.
As a result of this increased growth, and the need to replace workers who retire, overall job opportunities are expected to be good and the employment of Registered Nurses is projected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations from 2016 to 2026.*
