Summary

#elsevier

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports highlight a thriving healthcare employment sector, that from now till at least 2024, will easily outpace overall job growth for the nation. Good news for anyone looking for a well-paying opportunity with great prospects but a mixed blessing for the healthcare business since it reflects the dearth of licensed, trained professionals who are available to fill the empty positions that healthcare systems are facing. As the baby boomer generation heads into its “golden years,” the need for professionals to handle the chronic healthcare issues associated with old age will be more acute. How should higher education prepare future healthcare workers?
