Q.. I always wanted to be a nurse and volunteered at our local hospitals while in high school. Now I'm in college taking the pre-nursing course and hope to continue through grad school so I can work in administration. With health care so "up in the air" I wonder if that's still a good idea.
Ans. It's one of the best ideas anyone can have right now. Laurence Shatkin, one of the nation's leading occupational experts an author of both "150 Best Recession-Proof Jobs" and "10 Best College Majors for Your Personality" reports that nursing (R.N.Training) is one of the ten most secure majors for which jobs can be found. The average annual openings of related jobs, he says, are 233,499. Stick with your plan.
