Nursing Corner: Nursing Infographic
I recently stumbled upon this infographic. It’s crazy to think that in 2020 we are going to have 44 states that are going to have a nursing shortage! We can probably attribute it to the baby-boomers that are getting older and going to need more nursing care.
I’m excited to show this to my little sister who is currently applying to nursing school for the fall. She wants to work in Peds, but I secretly want her to work in the ER, then she can understand my stories.
It’s comforting to look at this and know that she and I have major job security! One of the raddest things about working in the ER is the flexibility of shifts. Since I’m per diem, I usually give availability from 7am to midnight and tell them to schedule me where they need me in those hours. I have never had to worry about not getting enough hours 😉
It looks like I’m part of the 9.1% of RN’s under 30, the 37% that are NOT full-time (I have two per diem jobs), the 30% that are not Caucasian and the 50% that do have their Bachelor’s degree in Nursing.
