Nurses are special people who combine compassion with competence. They are responsible, detail-oriented people who work in a very fast-paced and changing profession. Currently, there is growing concern over the shortage of nurses. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, more new jobs are expected to be created for Registered Nurses than for any other occupation.
