Study Says Nurses Will Be in Demand in South Dakota

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A state analysis has concluded that people able to care for patients, children or customers will find a favorable job market in South Dakota in the next decade.

The study by the Department of Labor predicts that the most average annual job openings in the state through 2022 will be in the fields of nursing, customer service and child care.
