The competition to hire quality healthcare workers is on the rise. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 5 of the 10 fastest growing professions are in healthcare, which, as an industry, is poised to generate 2.3 million new jobs and experience 18 percent growth between 2016 and 2026. What’s more, between 2016 and 2026, the top 6 growing health care related roles -- home health aides, personal care aides, physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, physical therapy assistants, and medical assistants, will each see between 29 and 47 percent growth.
But those are not the only healthcare professions slated for growth. Roles ranging from doctors of all specialties, registered nurses, healthcare administrations and occupational therapists will also see growing demand for their skills. One thing is clear: if you’re hiring for healthcare, the time is now to set yourself up with a competitive edge.
