Today marks the beginning of National Nurses Week, which runs May 6 through May 12, and celebrates the hardworking women and men and women who help improve the health and wellness of millions of people every day. Given the integral role they play in ensuring patients receive quality health care, it should come as no surprise that nurses are one of the most in-demand jobs today.
In fact, in a 2015 CareerBuilder survey, 46 percent of health care employers said the role they struggled to fill above all others was that of qualified registered nurses.
As our own way of recognizing National Nurses Week, CareerBuilder created a guide that highlights the best places to find qualified nursing talent. The data is based on research from Emsi, a CareerBuilder company that analyzes labor market data from over 100 sources — and the findings may surprise you.
For example, would you be able to identify the top colleges graduating registered nurses with bachelor’s degrees? Think you can predict which cities will add the most registered nurses over the next five years?
