Nursing in the Top 100 Best Jobs

Great news for nurses – nursing continues to rank highly on best jobs in the U.S. list! You’ve probably already heard that nurses rank at the top of the list for honesty and ethics, but that’s not all. Apparently, out of all jobs one can have in the U.S. (didn’t count, but it’s a lot), nursing is considered up there with the best! 

U.S. News and World Report just published its annual list of the best jobs and five nursing categories made it into the top 100.

4. Nurse anesthetists

6. Nurse practitioners

22. Registered nurses

69. Licensed practical and vocational nurses

80. Nurse midwifes

Why do nurses routinely rank so high on these lists? Good salaries, low unemployment, and work-life balance are just a few reasons. Plus, the healthcare sector continues to grow, meaning demand for nursing jobs will continue to rise.

Susannah Snider, Careers Editor at U.S. News, said, “Health care support occupations, for which demand is expected to grow as baby boomers age, are great opportunities for entry-level job seekers or those making a mid-career change.”

Go nurses!
