Nursing: Why It’s A Recession-Proof Industry You Should Consider

We all know that nursing is a noble career choice. Your job involves helping to save people’s lives. Plus, you can also bring comfort to those in need. As a nurse, you get to meet all kinds of interesting people in your life.

Nursing is one of the few career options that offers a real sense of gratification and reward. It’s also a niche that is recession-proof. And that’s something few industries can boast of these days! Here’s why you should consider nursing for your future career path:

Job Security

Part of the reason we make our career choices is down to job security. After all, what’s the point in selecting an industry if you will find it hard to seek suitable jobs?

Nursing is a role that offers virtually guaranteed job security. Plus, with the population growing at its current rate, there will be a greater demand for nurses. The Affordable Care Act (i.e. “Obamacare) further strengthens the need for more qualified nurses. Take a look at the infographic below to find out how the ACA affected the nursing market.

Transferable Skills

One of the unique advantages of nursing is that you’ve got skills you can apply to related niches. For instance, hospital nurses can also get jobs at private clinics and vice-versa.

Diverse Job Opportunities

Most people assume that nursing involves getting a job working at a hospital. Sure, many nursing roles include looking after patients each day. But, there are plenty of jobs that offer diverse opportunities.

For example, you could work with a research team developing new cures for diseases. Or you might get a job working on the management side of nursing and health care.
