Minnesota Health Care Schools - MN

Like most areas of the country, Minnesota will also be seeing a boom in healthcare jobs as Minnesota’s population of baby boomers ages and large numbers of healthcare professionals retire. This huge potential in job growth includes not just healthcare practitioners, but also technical and support positions. Additionally, to remain competitive with private sector healthcare jobs, local government is striving to offer more flexible hours and higher wages and bonuses, according to the Executive Director of the Local Public Health Association in St. Paul.

According to America's Career Info Net, home health aides, nursing aids, and other medical and dental assistants are some of the most common jobs available in this field and the fastest growing. Home health aides and medical assistants in particular have each grown over 50%.

Some of the largest healthcare employers in Minnesota are the Fairview Medical Center, Fairview Southdale Hospital, and Methodist Hospital in Minneapolis, Duluth Clinic in Duluth, and Park Nicollet Health SVC in Minnetonka, as well as the St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester.

There is also an abundance of career training opportunities, and Minnesota has organizations such as the Minnesota Hospital Association that help healthcare graduates find jobs at hospitals that best suit their education and training.

Just as with many other careers, education is the first step to success in the field of healthcare. Explore the schools below that offer a multitude of healthcare related degrees and training programs.
