Did you miss the newest release of the annual list of “Best Healthcare Jobs” by U.S. News & World Report?
Coming out just after the start of the new year when so much other news made the headlines, the list of all the “Best Jobs,” which includes healthcare, didn’t make its usual splash. Too bad, because the U.S. News methodology makes it more than a popularity contest, taking into account hiring demand, projected growth, occupational unemployment, pay, and measures like stress levels and work-life balance.
We singled out healthcare jobs, even though the list covers all sorts of industries and occupations because of its dominance. Of the top 10 jobs on the list of 100, 7 are in healthcare. Software developer, as is so frequently the case, ranks first, but right behind are dentist, physician assistant, orthodontist and nurse practitioner.
Registered nurse, often among the top 10 on previous lists, came in 13th. That’s only because the demand for several specialties with higher pay and fewer qualified professionals has grown even larger. Far more nurses are needed by 2028 (371,500) than speech-language pathologists (41,900).
As in-demand as these jobs are, Green Key Resources can help you fill vacancies fast. We know where the best people are and how to reach them. So if you are looking to fill a nursing job or have an opening for a physical therapist or other professional, one call to 212.683.1988 will put you in touch with a recruiting specialist who knows the industry and will work with you to get just the talent you want.
