Final Thoughts

Is healthcare really recession-proof? We say “Yes.” While no industry will be totally immune to the affects of recession, it looks as if healthcare will fare the best. Of course, every region, job, and facility are different, so it’s important to take the appropriate steps to assure your job is secure.

If you are thinking about switching careers, now is a great time to go back to school for a nursing degree. Many facilities continue to offer great perks like tuition reimbursement, loan forgiveness, and signing bonuses, so returning to school may be easier than ever.
