After several months of losses in 2020 and 2021, the healthcare industry is finally starting to add more jobs. The challenge, however, is finding people to fill those jobs, as the industry continues to see a decline in qualified candidates.
A study from Mercer estimates that the demand for healthcare workers will outpace the supply as soon as 2025, with shortages in positions such as nursing assistants, home health aides, nurse practitioners, and medical and lab technicians. Recent projections estimate that the U.S. may face a physician shortage of as much as 124,000 by 2034 if current trends continue.
Healthcare recruiters who are already often understaffed and overworked face an uphill battle when it comes to filling open positions with talented candidates who will stick around for the long term. This challenge will continue into the near future, as the pool of candidates grows increasingly smaller than the demand for them.
