A Nation in Need of Nurses [Infographic]

As our population ages, there is a continuous need for nurses. Fortunately, our life expectancy has lengthened, but the trouble is not having the infrastructure to support it. "From 2010-2020, available RN positions are expected to increase by 26 percent," according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). That's more than 700,000 new jobs needed—and for many reasons. To learn more about why there is an extreme demand for nurses in our country, check out the below infographic.
