• The area's population is aging and also focused on preventative care, so an array of healthcare workers are needed from clinics and convenient care to hospitals and nursing homes.

• Baby boomers in the industry are retiring, leaving leadership opportunities and their jobs need to be filled.

• Right now there are more nursing and related healthcare jobs open than there are people to fill them.
