You don’t hear a lot of kids say this. But maybe they should.

The Employment Security Department released a report today on skills that will pay the bills in upcoming years.

It forecasts that people interested in nursing, landscaping and computer-related occupations may find more jobs available to them through 2014.

Here’s a few of the details:

- State economists predict an estimated 53,155 people will be employed as registered nurses in 2009. That number will rise by 11 percent to 59,002 by 2014, according to the report.

- Jobs for computer software application engineers should go from 28,057 in 2009 to 30,964 in 2014.

- Landscape workers and grounds-keepers, at 28,248 jobs in 2009, will grow to 31,478 jobs in 2014.
