Change in Salary (2008–2014): +12%
Total Employees: 301,300
Change in Employees (2008–2014): +16%
Canadians are getting older, and that means the country will need more registered nurses. In fact, we could be short by nearly 60,000 full-time positions by 2022, according to the Canadian Nurses Association. That spells opportunity to break in and move up.
How to qualify: A registered nurse requires a bachelor of science in nursing, or a bachelor of nursing degree, both typically four-year programs. A diploma in practical nursing can be obtained within two years through a college, but practical nurses are limited in terms of the patients they can work with. Upgrading to a nursing degree is possible through another two-year program.
Money: Someone just entering the profession can expect to make just under $60,000. Nurses with more experience can top $80,000.
