Looking for a career in the Health Care field?

GRTS's Health Services Technology Program might be what you are looking for!

Jobs in the health care services industry are in greater demand than ever before. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that employment of healthcare occupations is projected to grow 18% from 2016 to 2026 - much faster than the average for all occupations - adding about 2.4 million new jobs. Healthcare occupations are projected to add more jobs than any of the other occupational groups. This projected growth is mainly due to an aging population, leading to greater demand for healthcare services.

Job opportunities abound for nursing aides and assistants in response to an increasing emphasis on rehabilitation and the long-term care needs of an increasing elderly population. In fact, the Department of Labor projects that the increased demand for health care services, led by the growing proportion of the elderly population, is expected to continue for a full 50 years!

Modern medical technology will also increase the employment of nursing aides, because as technology saves and extends more lives, it increases the need for long-term care.

Potential job opportunities...

  • Nursing assistant in residential care, hospital, or home health care
  • LPN or Registered Nurse
  • Surgical Assistant
  • Radiology Technician
  • EMT/Paramedic
