The need for nurses is expected to grow much faster than average for other jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There are several factors, which may contribute to the increased need for nurses.

One reason nurses are expected to be in demand is the fact that millions of baby boomers are hitting retirement age. In addition, there is an increase in people with chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, which means more people need care. Add in the Affordable Care Act, which allowed millions of previously uninsured people to seek medical care, and you may not have enough nurses to meet the demand.
