HEALTHeCAREERS Network Releases Q3 2012 Healthcare Jobs Snapshot

Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners in High Demand as Hospitals Look to Offset Physician Shortage

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2012) - HEALTHeCAREERS Network (HeCN), the only single-source healthcare recruiting solution for providers and job seekers, today released its Q3 2012 Healthcare Jobs Snapshot. The quarterly Snapshot reveals that healthcare providers continue to rank physicians/surgeons and nurses as the highest employment priorities. Over the last quarter, the healthcare industry also saw increases in job openings for both physician assistants and nurse practitioners. Also notable are year over year increases to open positions in pharmacy, counseling, and social services.

"Employment in healthcare continues to outpace other industries, yet providers continue to struggle to find talent as they face increasing physician burnout and a potential nursing shortage," said Mike Tansey, CEO of HEALTHeCAREERS Network. "We anticipate providers will continue to rely on nurse practitioners and physician assistants to fill in gaps in care as a result."
