Health Careers: Preparing Students for New Professions
The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects health care to be the fastest growing employment industry between 2014 and 2024. The U.S. Department of Labor expects health care will generate 3 million new jobs between 2006 and 2016, more than any other industry. Perhaps the biggest benefit of being a health care professional is that you will make a difference in people’s lives. Whether you work as a nurse, an occupational therapist, a dietician, or a medical doctor, to name just a few careers, you will be helping to make our world a little healthier, a little safer and a little better.
