There’s no denying it. The healthcare industry is booming and more careers than ever are now available for qualified professionals. But what are the fastest growing healthcare careers now and in the future? Here are the top 3:

  1. Physician Assistants – According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for these mid-level primary care providers is expected to grow by 39% through 2018. This demand can be attributed to large integrated health systems and retail clinics that are now looking for additional providers and hiring them in mass numbers. Almost every week, we receive job orders for new physician assistant positions.
  2. Physical Therapists – According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for this profession is expected to grow by 27% through 2018. This demand can be attributed to increasing health insurance coverage for physical therapy treatments and the aging population requiring more physical therapy care than ever before. If you’re a physical therapist, we can probably find several positions that you will be very interested in.
  3. Registered Nurses – According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for this profession is expected to grow by 22% through 2018. With many nurses among the 78 million Baby Boomers now nearing retirement, new nurses will be needed to take their place and meet growing patient needs. One of the main focuses in our organization is to match RNs with the perfect position for them.
