Welcome to the ShiftMed blog where we discuss everything nursing, from professional insights to healthcare holidays to helpful hints for working with us.
Nurses who want to further their careers have many options thanks to certifications. Whether you’re passionate about pediatrics or want to work in the ICU, there’s a specialty for you. And the best part is that you can earn these certifications at different points in your career.
While there was already a nursing shortage prior to the pandemic, the past three years have pushed the shortage of nurses to critical levels. It's estimated that 1.2 million new registered nurses will be needed by 2030. The Department of Labor and Statistics estimates that there will be 203,000 nursing job openings each year for the next decade.
Do you love the idea of being a nurse? Some people dream of a nursing career from when they’re children. While it’s not an easy job by any means, nursing is one of the world's most essential and meaningful jobs. Starting your journey all begins with getting into nursing school.
