Answer:  A. For the next 20 years, there will be more positions available than there will be nurses to fill them.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the nursing profession is one of the ten occupations projected to have the largest growth from 2000-2010.  In addition the need for nurses is projected for the next twenty years due to the aging of the baby boomers, increased medical technologies, the aging nursing workforce and the decline in nursing school enrollments.
