May 28, 2010, Newsletter Issue #180: Allied Health Shortages

Tip of the Week

With the baby boom generation getting older, there is a national shortage of workers in the allied health field, especially in nursing, geriatric care, and pharmacy. If you have an interest in this area, or are currently skilled in this area, you can work virtually anywhere in the United States that appeals to you.

As an illustration, pick an area of the country - say California - and type in to your favorite job board something like "search jobs in California". Compare the number of general postings in California to the number of postings for RN, LVN, CNA, Pharmacist, or Dietician.
