Increase «««


1% Physicians


Even though growth for physician job openings


remained relatively stagnant, this position still accounts for 40% of all openings in Q2.


Surge ««« NPs/PAs


16%


Providers are looking to NPs and PAs as valuable resources during physician shortages since they are more cost


efficient to recruit and now have the prescriptions-writing power in most states.


18% Healthcare IT


Surge «««


HIT analysts are the most in demand in terms of health IT job openings (30%). This trend indicates that many providers are continuing to evaluate and determine their best options for technology implementations, especially in the wake of the HITECH Act and as hospitals move toward ICD-10 and meaningful-use deadlines.


40%


Surge ««« Nurses


While physicians account for the majority of open positions, nurses represented the biggest increase from Q1 to Q2. Providers are searching


for seasoned nursing veterans; 90 percent of all open nursing positions require more than one year of experience.
