Jobs in nursing are projected to grow 15% by 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations, because of an increased emphasis on preventative care; growing rates of chronic conditions, such as diabetes and obesity; and greater demand for healthcare services from the baby-boom population. This volume explores all levels of the nursing profession, to give students and adult job-seekers real-world information about their many career paths, including: Cardiovascular Nursing; Neonatal Nursing; Psychiatric Nursing; Family Nurse Practitioner; Oncology Nursing; Women's Health Nursing; Geriatric Nursing; and Pediatric Nursing. With information on A Day in the Life, Work Environment, Education & Training, Earnings & Advancement, Employment Outlook, Networking Contacts, Areas with the Highest Employment Levels, and Conversations with Real Professionals, this new resource will be a helpful tool for those considering a career in nursing or the allied health field.<\P>
