Millions of Jobs in Healthcare!

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, November 20th, 2009

stethascopeWhile many jobs were lost last year, jobs in health care fields actually increased. Over the last eight years, of the 3 million new jobs in the private sector, 2.5 million of those were related to health care.

Experts agree this trend will continue. And the good news is, health care jobs can’t be outsourced like those in manufacturing or other fields. Those in the health care field are going to be jobs that stay in the United States and add to the economy.

In my Each One Reach One Nurse initiative, I remind nurses to advocate nursing as a great career. Even though some places have temporary hiring freezes, the nursing shortage still exists. All of us nurses need to be forward thinkers and help to end the shortage of tomorrow by helping to recruit and retain nurses today.

I’ve got lots of simple way to do that, please contact me.
