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.
Forensic nurses treat the victims of violence, crimes, abuse and trauma, while also aiding detectives in the scientific investigation that helps catch perpetrators. Even if they perform little to no direct patient care, forensic nurses must keep their RN license active. Certificates in Forensic Nursing are offered by such organizations as the University of California and American Forensic Nurses (AMRN), and forensic nurses can receive further certifications from the Forensic Nursing Certification Board (FNCB) as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Adult/Adolescent (SANE-A) or Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Pediatric (SANE-P). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses.
