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.
HIV/AIDS nurses treat patients that have been diagnosed with HIV or AIDS. The HIV/AIDS Nursing Certification Board (HANCB) maintains the Certification Examination in HIV/AIDS Nursing by which registered nurses may become an AIDS Certified Registered Nurse (ACRN). Registered nurses that have a masters degree or higher in nursing may be eligible to test for the Advanced AIDS Certification Registered Nurse Credential. The major professional organization for HIV/AIDS nurses is the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care (ANAC). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses. The median registered nurse salary is $62,450.
