Jobs may still be difficult to find for some new college graduates, but nursing grads can take heart from long-term projections that show they have one of the hottest degrees there is.

More than half a million positions for registered nurses (RNs) are projected to open up between 2012 and 2022, according to data released in January by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Only one other profession—personal care aides—is projected to add more jobs between 2012 and 2022, according to a BLS employment-outlook ranking.

During this period, the RN workforce is expected to grow from 2.7 million to 3.2 million—an increase of 526, 800 jobs. An additional 525, 000 nurses will be needed to replace those who leave the field, bringing the total number of new openings to more than 1 million by 2022. The data were published by the BLS in the latest edition of its Occupational Outlook Handbook. Licensed practical and vocational nurses also landed in a list of the occupations poised for the largest growth between 2012 and 2022.

“It’s very exciting, ” said Judy Beal, DNSc, RN, FAAN, dean and professor at the School of Nursing and Health Sciences at Simmons College in Boston and an alumna of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Executive Nurse Fellows program (2008-2011). “The outlook is looking very good.”

Demand for RNs is projected to surge thanks to an aging population that is living longer, but sicker, and in greater need of nursing care; growing rates of chronic diseases such as diabetes and obesity; and an increased emphasis on preventative care, according to the BLS. In addition, millions more people have new access to health care under the Affordable Care Act, which will also fuel demand for nursing services, experts say.

Jobs for advanced practice registered nurses are projected to grow at a faster clip than RN jobs, reports the BLS. Nearly 50, 000 more positions for nurse anesthetists, certified nurse midwives, and nurse practitioners are expected to open up by 2022. That is a 31 percent jump over the number of positions in 2012. RN jobs, by contrast, are poised to grow 19 percent over the same period. The average growth rate for all occupations is 11 percent.

“Nursing is always a marketable degree, ” said Suzanne Prevost, PhD, RN, dean and professor at the Capstone College of Nursing at the University of Alabama and an alumna of the RWJF Executive Nurse Fellows program (2009-2012). “During my 34 years in the profession, I have seen several cycles of shortage and oversupply. Even during the years of oversupply, plenty of options remain for nurses who demonstrate competence, a commitment to lifelong learning, and responsiveness to the needs of patients, families, and our health care system.”
