Build a career in the rapidly growing health care field

Significant changes in the health care industry, and within our society at large, are translating into a wealth of opportunities for trained health care professionals—at the bedside, on the business side and beyond.

The introduction of the Affordable Care Act has led to millions more people accessing health care services. The aging Baby Boomer population has created heightened demand for specialized older-adult care. Rapid movement toward electronic health care records and other new technologies has spurred a pressing need for trained professionals to support those high-tech initiatives. These and countless other factors have created unprecedented career opportunities in the health care field:

  • The health care industry is projected to add 15.6 million jobs—growing by 10.8 percent—between 2012 and 2022. [1]
  • Jobs in health care administration (the “business side” of health care) are expected to grow even faster—by 23 percent—between 2012 and 2022. [2]
  • Nursing is the fastest growing occupation in the U.S., with more anticipated job growth than any other profession between 2012 and 2022. [3]

Are you interested in working on the business side of health care—in medical records, billing, finance, human resources, leadership and beyond?

Are you a nurse looking to expand your knowledge and credentials or prepare for leadership and educational roles?
