Nurses have become so in-demand these days as more and more people put priority over their health and with lesser people engaging in the Nursing course. That's why countries such as Philippines, India and China has been a great source of nurses to fill nursing job vacancies in countries such as in North America, Europe and Middle East.
Apart from Nursing per se, other professions related to the health or medical field are also gaining popularity, like nursing assistant. This role is a little notch under nursing but still pays good. Nurses aid or nursing aids are an example of nursing assistant. Once you are a certified nursing assistant, you will get a higher salary, although it may not necessarily be higher than a registered nurse's (I am one!). But still this is one great career that one should consider, especially if Nursing is not just for you.
