Nursing is a highly skilled job that requires college education, like programming, except that it requires college education.

The entry level positions I am talking (Licensed Practical Nurse) about don't require a college degree, just a 6 month certification. There are also tiers of nursing available via an AA program. Regardless, they are decent paying jobs, and they are hard to fill.


There isn't a shortage of LPNs. In a lot of places there are an excess of LPNs.
