Book Description:
The nursing profession, is the largest health care occupation, with more than 2 million jobs. It is also one of the 10 occupations projected to have the largest numbers of new jobs. Earnings are above average, particularly for advanced practice nurses, who must have additional education or training. Licensed Practical Nurse training, on the other hand, lasts about 1 year is available in about 1,100 State-approved programs, mostly in vocational or technical schools.
Nursing homes are expected to offer the most new jobs. Job seekers in hospitals may face competition as the number of hospital jobs for LPNs declines. Job prospects for nursing and home health aides will also be very good because of fast growth and high replacement needs in these large occupations. Minimum education or training is generally required for entry-level jobs, but earnings are low. This book brings together detailed a detailed description of the profession, including the educational requirements as well as what can be expected upon entering the profession. Present and future issues in the field as well are also examined and a selective bibliography is included on books and journals of particular interest to newcomers to the field.

Table of Contents:
Occupational Description of the Nursing Field; Issues: Long-Term Nursing and Paraprofessional Issues; A Shortage of Nurses Now or Future? Emerging Nurse Shortages; Nurse Recruitment and Retention; Selective Bibliography.
