Practical Nurses work in hospitals, clinics and nursing homes. Employment prospects are excellent and there are many more opportunities emerging in a variety of diverse locations. More sophisticated procedures that once were performed only in hospitals are now being done in physicians' offices and clinics. That means employment of Practical Nurses is projected to grow much faster than average as healthcare expands outside the traditional hospital setting. Home healthcare services are also expected to grow faster than average because of the growing number of older persons and technological advances that make it possible to bring increasingly complex treatments into the home.
