In one of our previous posts, we talked about how the pandemic of COVID-19 has been hitting the businesses and jobs around the USA.
The same has occurred due to a huge shift in the habits of people.
People are no longer caring about the things that they rarely need, things that are not a part of their daily routine.
Businesses like travel agents, restaurants, shopping malls, etc. are going to suffer.
People are becoming more cautious about social gatherings & coming across a sick person. This is making businesses and companies change their operations.
People are getting more careful about their health and are ready to put money into good healthcare.
The sudden change in the atmosphere due to COVID-19 has also brought along a new need for frontline healthcare workers.
According to LinkedIn, Healthcare workers are in the most demand with the highest level of job openings. The increase in job listings for healthcare professionals tracks the rate of patients with coronavirus-related issues.
Let’s take a look at reasons why healthcare jobs are growing during this pandemic-
- Healthcare jobs are projected to grow 14% between 2018 and 2028, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). That’s nearly three times the average growth rate for all other occupations. Of the 10 fastest-growing jobs in the U.S., six are in healthcare.
- An aging American population is projected to drive a surge in a diversity of healthcare jobs: nursing aides, physical therapist assistants, physician assistants, nurse practitioners. There’s an opportunity in health across the spectrum of educational paths.
- The majority of the highest-paying occupations are in healthcare. Psychiatrists and anesthesiologists earn over $200,000 per year. Like all medical doctors, these specialists must complete at least 11 years of postsecondary education and training.
Growing Jobs in health care during COVID-19
- Registered nurses
- Physician assistants
- Nurse anesthetists, nurse midwives, and nurse practitioners
- Home Health / Personal Care Aides
- Occupational Therapy Assistants
- Speech-Language Pathologists
- Human Service Specialists
- Clinical Laboratory Technologists and Technicians
Demand for nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and registered nurses was already on an upswing before coronavirus. That’s thanks to the growing popularity of team-based health care, which the National Academy of Medicine defines as “the provision of health services to individuals, families, and/or their communities by at least two health providers who work collaboratively with patients and their caregivers.”
That trend has created many jobs for nurse practitioners and physician assistants, who handle routine medical work like patient physicals, and also work with doctors to develop treatment and wellness regimens.
Those roles are likely to be in even more demand as telehealth, and even teledentistry, become more popular, Popcorn tells Grow. The pandemic spurred growth in telemedicine services, which had struggled to catch on for years, and healthcare providers will need to staff up if they want to meet that rise in demand.
