Healthcare Job Numbers Increased in March

Overall, healthcare added 22,300 jobs last month, driven in large part by ambulatory care, according to seasonally adjusted numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

A majority of job gains, 19,200 in March, continued to come from ambulatory providers. The Affordable Care Act has prompted more healthcare providers to invest in the outpatient setting which have led to higher demand for nurses and physician extenders.
