RN jobs in LTC forecast to grow 25% by 2018.

Rebounding from a sluggish economy, registered nursing jobs in long-term care are predicted to rise a healthy 25% from 2008 to 2018, Nursing Spectrum/NurseWeek reported in an article citing statistics from the 2010-2011 edition of the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook.

The fastest-growing RN jobs will be in physician offices (48% growth rate) and home health (33% growth rate), according to federal projections. Hospital jobs will continue to increase as nurses get older and start to retire, but at a slower rate (17%) than other healthcare settings, Nursing Spectrum/NurseWeek repotted.
