As people get older they begin experiencing more health problems because of their fragile health and the elderly often need special care, particularly since a minor health-related issue can sometimes spin out of control quickly. As a result, the elderly often need more medical care than other groups. Geriatric nurses are some of the most important professionals in this field, as they often provide daily care for patients with unique needs. Since human life expectancy has increased, the demand for geriatric nurses is expected to increase dramatically. Working as a geriatric nurse is often very gratifying and personally rewarding.
