RN says health care offers "boundless" prospects for future
Health care jobs are expected to grow 30% over the next 10 years, offering a career path with "boundless prospects for the future" and avenues for advancement, says registered nurse Ann Zenk of the Wisconsin Hospital Association. State policymakers support investing in the health care workforce, Zenk says, and more than 10,000 nurses were added in Wisconsin from 2012 to 2016.
