Both men and women, who have had successful careers in a variety of industries, consider taking on new professional challenges in their 40's and 50's. Many times there is a desire to enter in a career where they can make a difference and improve the quality of life for others. I have a friend that returned to school in her 40's and received a 2 yr RN degree, completed a RN to BSN program and is now in grad school studying to become a Family Nurse Practitioner.

He points out, "The nursing profession faces an especially acute shortage of skilled labor, the result of the health sector's projected growth, expected retirements and a shortage of training programs for new nurses. The number of available positions is expected to grow 2 percent to 3 percent annually through 2016, and one study projects a shortage of 500,000 registered nurses by the year 2025. There are similar shortages projected in the ranks of pharmacists and home-care aid workers. Positions also exist for people who aren't trained in medical professionals—music and art therapy, occupational health and safety and social workers."

Mark also has also listed 20 fast growing occupations that have an above average number of workers age 55 and older. Among the 20, 7 are in healthcare.
