The demand for healthcare services is expected to continue to increase over the next ten years or more as our aging population grows and more individuals have access to health insurance. As a result of this increased demand, more nurses will be needed to care for these patients in offices of physicians, clinics, and other ambulatory care settings and the employment of Registered Nurses is projected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations from 2014 to 2024.
