Prepare for a career in a growing industry

According to the recent U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, healthcare workers at all levels of education and training will continue to be in demand. In many cases, it may be easier for jobseekers with health-specific training to obtain jobs and advance in their careers. Specialized clinical training is a requirement for many jobs in healthcare and could even be an asset for administrative jobs that do not specifically require it.*
