The conventional wisdom is right—people with college degrees do make more money than high school graduates. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) found that the more educated, the greater the compensation. A master’s degree graduate made an average of $1,228 a week in 2008; a bachelor’s degree graduate earned $978, while a high school graduate with no college experience made $591.
As well, educated people stay employed longer. The BLS reported that in 2008 an average of 2.4% of master’s degree graduates were unemployed, 2.8% of the bachelor’s degree holders didn’t have jobs, while 5.7% of high school graduates were not employed.
The BLS also confirms that in 2006, health care is the largest industry in the United States with 14 million jobs. In their ‘Employment Situation Summary’ of 12/4/09, they report that during the economic downturn, health care has added 613,000 jobs between 12/07 and 11/09.
We tailor our programs so you can put what you learn in the classroom into practice in the real world.
Our formula for success combines proven theories with practical application and the latest knowledge from health care industries. Our faculty are working in the field, and they instruct you on what works in the working world.
