Salary Range: $42,441 – $81,888
They do an infinite number of jobs in this booming industry, but one of the hottest right now is nursing. Health Care Workers don’t just work in hospitals these days. They also work in a variety of specialties at outpatient centers, urgent care clinics, insurance companies and schools.
Why It’s Hot
There are an estimated 77 million Baby Boomers at or near retirement age. This “silver tsunami” will leave many openings to be filled in the job market, and as they age they will need health care services themselves.
What You’ll Need
Some positions require only certification, while others like nursing require a diploma or degree – plus licensing. For professional fields like physical therapy, you will need an advanced degree.
