BLS: HEALTHCARE JOBS STILL GROWING
The latest US Bureau of Labor Statistics Employment Situation Summary says that although US unemployment rate is still at 8.8%, jobs are still plentiful in healthcare. Since November, many Americans have found jobs. The unemployment rate has tumbled from the November high of nearly 10%.
Health care employment continued to increase in March (+37,000 jobs). Over the last 12 months, health care has added 283,000 jobs, or an average of 24,000 jobs per month. The conclusion remains the same for employers in this sector as it has for the previous 20+ years: internationally-trained staff will remain a significant part of the US healthcare workforce.
