Careers in the field of health are ranked as one of the top occupations in the US, and government statistics predict continued growth for at least the next 10 years. As the nation’s largest industry, healthcare provides more than 13.5 million jobs in the US. In fact, that number is expected to continue to rise, as according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for healthcare occupations is projected to grow 19 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. This growth will result in more than 2.3 million new jobs.
