Nurses are typically considered the backbone of the healthcare community. Professionals in this field provide direct care services to patients, work closely with physicians, help administer medication, and diagnostic exams, and educate the public about treatment and disease prevention. The majority of them work in hospitals, health clinics, rehabilitation facilities, and outpatient centers. According to the U.S. Labor Department, employment for Registered Nurses (RNs) is extremely favorable - specifically because of the high turnover in many medical settings. There's also a growing number of professionals in this sector who are preparing to retire, which makes room for newly skilled individuals.
