From the American Nurses Association:
The world of nursing is becoming more specialized, and some practice areas are seeing some major growth. If you’re interested in focusing on a specific practice area, you may need to get some additional education or training, but after you do, you could find the nursing job you’ve been looking for.
If you’re looking for a change or a new challenge, consider some of these emerging practice areas for nursing.
Labor and Delivery
Labor and delivery is a growing area, agrees Jeremy Enck, vice president of sales at Fortus Healthcare Resources. “We have seen more opportunities for surgery, labor and delivery, and dialysis positions for nurses and nurse managers.”
What Employers Want
If you’re interested in getting into one of these emerging areas, Enck says employers are seeking nurses with a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, and that being bilingual can be a big help in certain areas. “Nurses who possess a solid education and marketable skills have unlimited growth potential into the foreseeable future.”
