Healthcare is not only the largest and one of the fastest-growing industries in Florida, but as of 2018 has become the nation’s largest employer, eclipsing even manufacturing and retail . Our country’s aging population and government subsidy of the industry has put healthcare on track to create 4 million jobs by 2026, ranging occupations from home health aides, nurses and physicians to billing clerks and hospital administrators. There are positions in the health care industry for all levels of education, and, due to demand, many employers will pay for training to further your career. At the same time, healthcare professions can be highly demanding, often requiring one to work an irregular or extended schedule, deal with difficult and emotionally trying circumstances, and pay extreme attention to detail in many positions where a mistake can prove life-threatening. If you have a strong desire to help others and consider yourself someone who performs well under pressure, healthcare can be a highly rewarding career path with great opportunity for advancement.
