“As per WHO, the nurse-patient ratio should be 3:1000, but the actual ratio in India is 3:1777.” 

To fulfill this demand, India will need thousands of certified nurses in various fields during the upcoming years. 

You must have seen the grave shortage of healthcare professionals (especially doctors & nurses) on news during the peak of the pandemic. Well, the present nurse-patient ratio in even the developed countries is quite worrying, worse in developing and low-income nations. Moreover, as national governments have already begun with their vaccination programs worldwide, the demand for certified nurses is going to go insane. 

So, if you are a student weighing the pros & cons of becoming a nurse and confused about the nursing career opportunities, we got you covered in this article. 

Best Nursing Career Opportunities after Covid-19 Pandemic

Apart from conventional career options after B.Sc. Nursing, these are a few high in-demand but less famous  career options:


1. Dialysis Nurse

2. Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA)

CRNAs are advanced-level nurses who have years of experience and knowledge in administrating anesthetics to patients for surgery and operations. CRNAs are the highest paid nurses in India and abroad as well because they provide critical  care and medication to patients.

4. Chief Nursing Officers

If you want to build a  career in the non-clinical field, CNO is the best option for you. Chief Nursing Officers work in the management of primary healthcare setups whose job is to supervise the junior nurses and ensure that  care needs are fulfilled.

If your interest lies more towards mental disabilities and relevant diseases, you must consider becoming a psychiatric nurse. With more and more people falling prone to depression and anxiety, the need for psychiatrists, therapists, and psychiatric nurses is at an all-time high.
