Healthcare Jobs Continue to be in Demand

Wanted Analytics has come out with a report indicating that healthcare jobs continue to be in demand. Below are some of the key findings.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), healthcare added an average of 26,000 jobs per month this year. Just this past month, hospitals gained +8,000 jobs and nursing care facilities gained +5,000 jobs. As Registered Nurses, Physical Therapists, and Occupational Therapists continue to top the list of the most in-demand job titles throughout the US, Wanted Analytics took a look at which other job titles are most commonly advertised in hospitals and nursing homes and included them below.

  1. Registered Nurse Supervisor
  2. Cook
  3. CNA
  4. Certified Nursing Assistant
  5. Speech Language Pathologist
  6. LPN
  7. Nurse
  8. Pharmacist
  9. Registered Nurse Medical Surgeon
  10. Registered Nurse LCU


With Registered Nurse being one of the most in-demand job titles, it’s not surprising to see other specific Registered Nurse titles appear on this list. However, it is surprising to see Cook among the most commonly advertised job titles. This isn’t usually a job title associated with healthcare positions, yet Cooks are required to prepare meals for patients, as well as in the cafeteria for employees and visitors.

Over the past few years, hiring demand for nursing care facilities saw its highest demand during April 2012, with more than 26,000 job ads. As of November, demand increased 13% year-over-year when compared to November 2011. Hiring by General Medical and Surgical Hospitals experienced its highest volume during June, with over 102,500 job ads. In November, demand increased 17% year-over-year.
