Job Outlook

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of nursing aides is expected to grow by 20 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations. Because of the growing elderly population, many nursing aides, orderlies, and attendants will be needed in long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes.
