As the nation's baby boomer generation has aged, there's been a corresponding increase in demand for workers to provide health-care services. It comes as little surprise then that the health-care sector has added an average of 28,000 jobs a month during the last 12 months, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Not only is the number of health-care related jobs growing, many are also well-paying. They include positions such as case managers, who develop and implement care plans for patients dealing with severe or complicated diagnoses.
According to salary surveys, case managers earn a national mean salary of about $68,000 a year. More than pay, however, the profession can be personally rewarding, since the aim of case managers is to get the best and most appropriate treatment for patients whose need for care is indisputable.
