A recent article about Swedish Medical Center in Seattle expresses how there is a great opportunity to work in health care, specifically nursing jobs. This is because there is a major labor shortage in the nursing industry, and it.s only going to get worse as more baby boomer aged nurses get closer to retiring. So, hospitals in Seattle are doing whatever they can to recruit young nurses, train them, and retain them. Other Seattle hospitals are Northwest Hospital, Harborview Medical Center, and Seattle Children.s Hospital.
Flight-transport nurses are emergency-trauma nurses that treat patients during air and/or ground transport before they reach a medical facility or while transferring critically ill patients between facilities. The Certified Flight Registered Nurse (CFRN) credential is available through the Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing (BCEN) and is accredited by the American Board of Nursing Specialties (ABNS). To become a CFRN, a registered nurse must have a current license; flight nurse experience is recommended but not required. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses. According to PayScale, the flight nurse salary range is $58,340-$80,654.
