The health care system is changing rapidly, and you can stay ahead of the curve by completing a health services program at Helms College. Employment in the medical field is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations as the industry continues to expand and diversify. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics: “The healthcare and social assistance industry is projected to create about 28 percent of all new jobs created in the U.S. economy by 2020. This industry—which includes public and private hospitals, nursing and residential care facilities, and individual and family services—is expected to grow by 33 percent, or 5.7 million new jobs.” Helms College’s School of Health Services trains students for this exciting field.
