THE RISING DEMAND FOR ALLIED HEALTH & NURSING PROFESSIONALS
While job losses are mounting nationwide as businesses shutter, healthcare workers are needed more than ever to deal with the influx of patients due to COVID-19. As per a recent report by CNN, the United States will need to hire 2.3 million new healthcare workers by 2025 to be able to take care of the aging population qualitatively. The need for trained professionals like registered nurses, nursing assistants, radiologic technologists, and more are in high demand.
