Masters in Healthcare in Pennsylvania
In an effort to combat a health care workforce plagued by high turnover rates and an inadequate supply of new and replacement workers, the Pennsylvania Center for Health Careers was created in 2004. The Center focuses on increasing the capacity of Pennsylvania’s nursing education system, retaining health care workers in health care professions, responding to the demand for critical allied health professions, and addressing the needs of direct care workers.
The health care industry is Pennsylvania’s largest employer, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry Center for Workforce and Information Analysis. Employment of workers in health care and social assistance increased 6.8% from Dec. 2007 to Dec. 2012 and is expected to continue to increase. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, registered nurses, home health aides, nursing aides, orderlies and attendants employ a significant number of health care industry workers in the state. People with master’s degrees in health care would benefit from an industry that is growing and in demand of highly-skilled workers.
