Employability Confidence Growing Among Health Care Workers

Healthcare Workers Confidence

A new survey has found that an overwhelming majority of professionals with health care experience on their resumes feel confident in their ability to hold down a job.


According to the Harris Interactive confidence index report, 80% of health care workers said they feel it is unlikely they will lose their job in the near future. Another 58% said they are confident they would be able to find work even in today's tough job market.

The report found that based on the increasing need for health care services in the country, along with an aging population and health care reform, the industry will continue to need highly-skilled talent.

Based on the increasing need for healthcare services, we believe the sense of personal confidence seen in our latest employment report will only increase as highly-skilled talent continues to drive their own careers within this high-growth trajectory field, health care career expert Steve McMahan noted.

A majority of health care workers, 66%, also said they feel confident in their employer's future and the financial health of their companies.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that employment opportunities for licensed practical and vocational nurses are expected to increase faster than all other occupations, by 22%, through the end of the decade.
