A new report has found that health care hiring is up 11% , regardless of the degree level on a candidate's resume


According to the study by the Collegiate Employment Research Institute (CERI), hiring across the health care industry is expected to continue, with more than 700,000 new nursing positions projected to be filled by 2020.

To meet the need of the growing industry, Rasmussen College will host a nationwide Career and Networking Expo at each of its 22 campuses on August 16.

It is encouraging to see that careers in healthcare continue to grow, especially as the need in this industry continues to rise, Rasmussen College Director of Career Services Tamryn Hennessy stated. "At Rasmussen College, we make sure that our School of Health Sciences curriculum includes hands-on experience in clinical settings and is focused around requirements identified by industry leaders so that our graduates enter the job market prepared to make an immediate contribution to their employers' success."

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that job opportunities for registered nurses are expected to increase faster than the average of all other occupations, by 26%, through the end of the decade.
