As a job seeker clearly the health care industry is one of the few growth areas in our “jobless recovery”. This can be very positive for those who want to move towards a career as a nurse in either a private practice or hospital.
These jobs tend to pay higher than average wages. But they also require some investment in specialized scrubs. A lab coat or uniform scrub is not an inexpensive investment so it is necessary to research where style (yes it can be cool), quality and economic necessity converge in a scrub set. Usually this is not in a local store. The good news there are competitively priced cotton scrubs that you can buy online.
