The nursing industry is exploding! The basic facts are: people are living longer than ever before, the median age of registered nurses is on the rise, there are more nursing positions open than nurses to fill those positions, and the procedures that once required intensive care can now be done daily. Only a short while ago, it was unusual for people to live beyond their 70s. With new medical technology, that age is rising, and the people who are living longer tend to have a greater need for nursing care. These patients need help in hospitals, in assisted-living or retirement facilities, and in their homes. The people who are living longer owe their increased life expectancy to new technologies and procedures. These procedures can be done in clinics and outpatient care facilities, as well as hospitals. Each facility needs a full staff, including practical nurses. The demand for nursing is extremely high in the Erie area and across the nation.
