No doubt you’d be thrilled to never hear another statistic about the Baby Boomer generation. But this one could affect your career—in a most positive way.

Every day, ten thousand people will reach the age of 65. In an interesting twist of demographic fate, the nursing workforce is aging as well. The average age of working nurses today is 47. Do you see where this is going?

By 2025, the nation will likely face a shortage of 250,000 nurses*. You, my friend, are in demand. The world needs nurses. Advanced degrees are becoming increasingly common, in part to meet this evolving need.

What should you do? First, take a moment to enjoy the feeling of job security this news portents. It’s better than putting on a pair of socks just out of the dryer, isn’t it? When you’re done, consider advancing your career through education.
