According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nursing jobs are expected to grow by 26% (way above average) by 2020. Why, then, are new nurse grads struggling to find jobs?
As it turns out, the recession has played a huge role in the decline of openings for new grads nursing jobs. A January 2013 report on CNNMoney reports that one of the reasons nursing had been such a booming industry is because, prior to the recession, many nurses took extended periods of time off to raise families, left the profession due to burnout, or retired early. Since the recession, nurses are holding on to their jobs longer due to spouses losing jobs and general financial uncertainty. Thus, fewer jobs are being created and medical facilities can afford to be more selective. Meanwhile, university nursing programs have more than doubled in enrollment in the past decade, making fierce competition for new grads nursing jobs.
There is good news: the baby boomers aren’t going anywhere, and new graduate nurse positions are expected to see a dramatic increase within the next few years.
