Most health care occupations are expected to see growth of at least ten percent by 2024.

“As the need for healthcare services continues to grow, so will employment in most healthcare occupations. Employment for registered nurses, the largest healthcare occupation, is projected to grow 16 percent by 2024 from its level of 2,751,000 in 2014.”

(Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, June 2016)

 

The median wage for health practitioners is more than twice the U.S. median wage across all occupations.

“In May 2015, the median annual wage for health diagnosing and treating practitioner occupations was $76,760, more than twice the median, or 50th wage percentile, for all occupations ($36,200).”

The number of job openings in health care and social assistance reached an all-time high in 2016.

“The number of job openings in an industry is a strong indication of the demand for labor. In January 2016, job openings in the healthcare and social assistance industry reached an all-time series high of 1,046,000. During that month, job openings for private industry were 5,137,000. For that period, job openings in healthcare and social assistance represented 20 percent of all job openings in private industry. In January 2016, representative of unmet demand for labor in the healthcare and social assistance industry, the number of job openings were double the number of hires. In comparison, over the last year, the number of job openings and hires in private industry have converged.”
