Workforce Trends
Health care is the largest and fastest-growing industry in the United States, employing over 10 million workers in more than 200 careers.

The explosion of technology in health care and an unprecedented aging population contribute to the national health care workforce shortage.

In the U.S., registered nurses held approximately 2.5 million jobs in 2006; making registered nursing the largest health care occupation. About 3 out of 5 RN jobs are in hospitals, in inpatient and outpatient departments.

Employment is estimated to increase 23 percent through 2016.
