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.
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.
