You’ve always loved helping people and found an interest in those sluggish science classes. Whether you prefer to diagnose, treat, or prevent, it’s obvious healthcare is the place for you.
In healthcare, you need others, and they definitely need you. The healthcare industry added 271,000 new positions last year, and the upward trend is continuing in 2014. Job boards have already seen a 16% increase in healthcare job postings compared to this time last year*.
There's a shortage of healthcare professionals worldwide. With an overall aging population and the increasing complexity of the healthcare system, the time has never been better to be a trained and qualified healthcare professional. If it’s time to start your healthcare career, up, up and away!*HealthECareers, http://www.healthecareers.com/article/healthcare-job-outlook-most-new-jobs-projected/174918
