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.
"Healthcare overall added 22,300 jobs last month."Hospitals also continued to produce steady employment last month, adding 7,900 jobs, a 0.2% increase from February. More than 77,000 hospital jobs were created between March 2014 and March 2015.
