It is no big secret that the upcoming retirement of the baby boomers will put enormous strain on the health care industry. While this may not be great times for hospital management, qualified nurses are in high demand and enjoy many job benefits including sign on bonuses, tuition reimbursement, and retention bonuses.

There are hundreds of career avenues for nurses, but here are five career paths that show an especially high social need and can offer nurses both financial and career satisfaction.

              1. Home Health Care Nurses

              2. Staff Nurses

              3. School Nurses

              4. Forensic Nurses

              5. Legal Nurse Consultants

    Well, Val, adult psychiatric nursing is a very rewarding and career path! BUT, before embarking on a particular path - i would suggest that you acquire Med-Surg experience. Patients can go bad fast and if all you know is your particular specialty area . . .
