The health sector is one of the largest employers in California, providing a wide range of job options to residents of both urban and rural areas. With rapid population and expanded coverage under the healthcare reform, the demand for high-quality healthcare services is increasing. In order to provide these services, a sufficient pool of qualified workers is needed. Healthcare continues to add jobs, albeit at a slower pace than usual because of the recent recession. This provides job seekers with an opportunity to enter and retain employment in a wide range of health occupations and skill levels. Many of these jobs provide good wages and career advancement opportunities. Developing a competent healthcare workforce across a full spectrum of occupations is crucial for the sector and economic well-being of California.
