DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - Dec 18, 2012) - HEALTHeCAREERS Network (HeCN), the only single-source healthcare recruiting solution for providers and job seekers, today released its 2012 End of Year Jobs Snapshot. Findings indicate that most healthcare organizations remain committed to addressing shortages and burnout, and the highest employment priorities continue to be physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners. 

"Throughout 2012 we've seen healthcare organizations look for creative ways to staff appropriately to combat increasing physician shortages," said Mike Tansey, CEO of HEALTHeCAREERS Network.
