Healthcare Jobs: Ambulatory Care Jobs Double

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, January 18th, 2012

I’m always thrilled to hear of healthcare jobs on the rise – especially within the nursing profession. Driving growth in ambulatory services is a number of factors. Technological advances have enabled a greater number of health problems to be treated by outpatient doctors and nurse practitioners.

A boom in nursing care, as record numbers hit retirement age, and a clinical emphasis on preventive care, help spawn thousands of jobs within the nursing profession – including nurse specialists and therapists.

Healthcare jobs projected to increase most in coming years include many in the nursing profession: registered nurses (RNs), nursing aides, licensed practical and licensed vocational nurses, reports The Bureau of Labor.

The outlook for healthcare jobs is positive according to Labor. Healthcare jobs continue to outpace employment sectors manufacturing and construction and are expected to number 344,000 by year’s end, a level of growth not seen in four years.

There is much hope for nursing professionals seeking jobs.
