CA Facing Allied Health Shortage

According to a report issued by The California Wellness Foundation, by 2030, the state of California will need 988,000 allied health professionals.

Similar to the nurse faculty shortage, the allied health workforce is experiencing problems with retaining educators because instructors get paid more money to work than to teach the profession. In addition, California’s state budget crisis is reducing the systems’ ability to offer classes due to high equipment and material costs.

There is one positive note…About half of the allied health professional jobs that will be required in the state by 2030 are entry-level positions, meaning a high school education is all that’s needed.

For all those allied health staffing agencies out there, it sounds as though CA is a good place to start marketing your services.
