We celebrate National Nurses Week from May 6 – 12. Let’s take a moment to honor nursing and the hardworking professionals who keep our nation healthy. Nurses treat patients and clients who struggle with illness and injury, but they also take care of our population in ways we may not recognize: Nurses often act as tireless public health advocates, educators, researchers, clinic managers, health policy experts, and technicians. Some run private practices, teach university courses, and lobby congress on health-related initiatives. And some nurses focus on areas of the healthcare field that are experiencing spikes in demand. It’s incredible. Hooray for nurses!Want to become a part of this? If so, you should contemplate your focus. Here are five specialty areas where you’ll find high levels of opportunity.
