According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nursing is the largest healthcare occupation. In 2008, registered nurses held about 2.6 million jobs in this country, and a 22 percent growth is predicted for employment of registered nurses from 2008-2018 due to technological advances in patient care and the increasing emphasis on preventive care.*
