The Labor Department predicted there will be 712,000 new jobs for registered nurses created between 2010 and 2020. For more than 20 years health care has been the most consistent industrial sector experiencing continuing job growth. The country, however, is now in a period of mixed signals: while some news reports describe the career outlook for registered nurses as strong, others describe the job search as frustrating and discouraging. RN employment and compensation actually rose during the recession, but recent trends suggest a slowdown.

Join ANA's economist, Peter McMenamin, PhD, as he discusses the current economic environment including future wage and growth projections, hiring trends, factors affecting the nursing shortage, the effects of the Affordable Care Act on nursing employment, reimbursement of services provided by APRNs and the role of nurses in providing Care Coordination.
