Nursing is #1 in many areas which makes it a very attractive career choice.
In 2012 “Nurse” was number 1 in U.S. News Best Jobs of 2012. Nursing is ranked number 1 for new jobs between 2010-2020. In a rocky economy, a career with steady rise of available positions is always attractive. My personal favorite reason why nursing is #1 is that nursing has consistently been ranked as number 1 in honesty and ethical standards by Gallop poll for the past 11 years. I appreciate a profession that’s trustworthy and honest.
