AMN - Demand for Healthcare Workers Spirals Upward
Forces driving long-range demand for healthcare workers remain very strong. In particular, the number of Americans who are 65 and older is projected to double in the next few decades; people 65 and older utilize significantly more healthcare services – and more complex services – than the general population, which will greatly increase demand for healthcare professionals who provide those services. Other drivers include the improving economy, which is expected to produce more than 10 million new jobs in the next decade. Increased employment means increased healthcare demand, because many of those jobs come with healthcare coverage, or they provide resources to pay for healthcare. In addition, shortages of many types of healthcare professionals are expected to grow, including because of the retirement wave of Baby Boomers among physicians, nurses and allied health professionals. Replacement jobs will be a major factor boosting the numbers of job openings in healthcare, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. The fastest rate of healthcare employment growth in the decade from 2016-2026 is expected in ambulatory care. In fact, one ambulatory care industry -- home healthcare -- is projected to be the fastest growing of any industry in the U.S. economy.
