In Northern California, there has been great expansion of nursing programs in recent years, meaning that during this recession there is tougher competition for San Francisco nursing jobs. Nursing graduates and students shouldn.t be alarmed, however, as demand for RNs will be growing and hospitals will need plenty of nurses to prepare for the long-term shortage. San Francisco.s largest hospitals include: St. Mary.s Medical Center, Saint Francis Memorial Hospital, and UCSF Medical Center.
Parish nurses, also known as church nurses, combine their nursing skills and religious faith to care for fellow members of their religious community. One resource for parish nurses is the International Parish Nurse Resource Center run by Deaconess Parish Nurse Ministries, LLC. The American Nurses Association (ANA) calls parish nursing, faith community nursing. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses. The median annual salary of registered nurses is $62,450; annual salaries are greatly influenced by specialty, experience, region and industry.
