New Curriculum Resources Address the Need for More Healthcare Professionals
Throughout the last decade, the healthcare industry has grown substantially. In 2018, the healthcare industry employed 16.2 million, one in seven, American workers, employing nearly 11% of the U.S. workforce. Employment opportunities are only expected to grow, and by 2026, the field is expected to grow by 18%, providing work for more than 18 million Americans. The extreme growth is primarily due to the increasing age of the American population, and millions of individuals will need to be trained in healthcare positions to meet the demand.
To address the need greater number of healthcare professionals, schools are putting more emphasis on health science classes at the secondary and post-secondary levels. As part of our goal to meet industry needs through our extensive online CTE library, iCEV has developed new courses and educational resources to train the next generation of healthcare professionals.
