Masters in Healthcare in New Jersey

Health care is a growth industry in New Jersey, accounting for three of every five new jobs in the state since 1990, and showing reliable employment growth even during recessions, according to the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development. The most employment growth in the health care industry has been seen in the subsectors of ambulatory health care services, and nursing and residential care facilities, the labor and workforce department reported. Therefore, you may encounter more job openings at outpatient clinics and nursing homes than in hospitals, even though hospitals are still adding employees. A New Jersey Masters in Healthcare with a specialization in long-term care management could be a good move for those who want to advance to administrative or clinical leadership in such facilities. In 2011, 7,840 people were employed as medical and health services managers, an occupation that encompasses nursing home administrators, clinical managers, health information managers, and other health care administrators, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Their average annual earnings that year were $110,100, the BLS noted, one of the highest averages in the nation for this occupation.
