10 most exciting jobs in nursing


# 10 – Assisted Living and Long Term Care

Gone are the days when long term care was just for those in their final years. Today’s shorter in-patient hospital stays put many patients – young or old – into 30-day stays in long term care facilities. Nurses who enjoy spending more than just a few days with patients in a hospital setting may find that long term care offers higher emotional rewards – and huge opportunities for growth.

Opportunities for nurses to move into management positions are growing quickly, as long term care is expected to more than double within the next decade.

Sample job description: “Provide leadership to care givers, develop plans of care for residents, meeting with resident families to communicate change in condition, and interface with support professionals to help maximize resident independence.”
