Health Care Schools in Missouri - MO

Healthcare careers are some of the fastest growing jobs in the United States, and Missouri is certainly part of this trend. It is predicted that by 2010, healthcare workers will need to fill over 14 million positions in the United States. The causes for these impending gaps are multi-faceted, but it’s known that the existing shortage will only increase as the large baby boomer population ages.

Some of the fast-growing jobs in the healthcare sector in Missouri are dental hygienists, medical and dental assistants, physicians assistants, home health aides, and medical scientists. However, job opportunities are not limited to these jobs. Nurses will also be in great demand in Missouri hospitals and medical facilities, and Missouri schools and state hospitals are striving to meet this future need. Many universities have added accelerated one-year Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing degrees. The Missouri Hospital Association has also added scholarships for nursing to encourage an influx of younger workers into the profession.

According to America' s Career Info Network, some of the largest employers in the state are hospitals, including the Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, which employs roughly 9000 people, as well as St. John’s Emergency Trauma Center in Springfield, which employees 6000. The Barnes Jewish Hospital is currently ranked among the nation’s top ten hospitals, according to the U.S. News and World Report. Additionally, hospitals and professional healthcare associations in Missouri are working to bring in new generations of qualified healthcare workers by offering perks such as flexible work schedules, competitive wages, scholarships, bonuses and part-time jobs with benefits.

Take advantage of this growth and find out what career in the field of healthcare is right for you. Start here by exploring the schools below. We are confident you will find the education you need to help get you the job that you want.
