Citing continued long-term nursing shortages, the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is encouraging students to consider careers in nursing and other health occupations.

A Kids Into Health Careers tool kit, unveiled by DHHS Secretary Tommy Thompson at a Washington, DC, junior high school, provides information on more than 270 health careers, such as nurse, physical therapist, x-ray technician, sports therapist, and emergency medical technician. The kit includes information on education, salary outlook, and student aid.
