According the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, preliminary data for the first quarter of 2011 shows a significant increase in the number of new healthcare jobs. The sector created more than 82,000 new jobs through March, leaving the 2010 number of 63,200 in the dust. Hospitals alone half created more than 19,000 new jobs so far this year. One of the areas showing significant increases is that of dialysis. Whether you’re talking about dialysis nurses or technicians, working in a hospital dialysis center, stand-alone dialysis practice, or renal manufacturing environment, the industry is hurting for qualified people. In fact, aggressive recruiting of new candidates is now on par with that of nurses and nurse practitioners. Qualified dialysis workers can pick and choose among seemingly endless lists of openings around the country to find the perfect job for them. Recruiters A quick Internet search of a dialysis jobs reveals dozens of recruiters looking to hire workers today. These recruiters have plenty of acute and non-acute positions in hospitals, clinics, and private practices. They provide everything from standard placement services to resume assistance, doing whatever they can to fill open positions with qualified people. The only question for dialysis workers is whether or not a particular recruiter is a good match for them. Those who prefer to apply for jobs without the help of a recruiter still have plenty of options. One job listing site which covers only employment opportunities in the healthcare industry listed more than 7,700 dialysis-related jobs. There are plenty of other job search websites which cover other sectors in addition to healthcare, but they will also have plenty of listings for dialysis jobs and other related opportunities. Posting your resume on such sites will easily garner phone calls and interview requests; sometimes in as little as a few hours. Travel Jobs Traveling nurses are among the most sought after in the industry because they fill a niche area which is otherwise difficult for hospitals and medical facilities to deal with. This is also true in the field of dialysis, where specialized nurses are in demand on a temporary basis. In a traveling job the dialysis nurse would take a temporary position lasting anywhere from one to six months, while a permanent worker is on leave. When that permanent worker returns the traveling nurse then takes a new assignment in a new location. Long-Term Outlook As the U.S. population continues to get older dialysis treatment is expected to be part of the healthcare plan for more and more people, and the availability of dialysis jobs will increase accordingly. It’s expected by some experts that once the healthcare law is fully implemented in 2014 the need for nurses and technicians in the dialysis field will spike even higher. Those interested in a career in health care would do well to consider being a dialysis technician or nurse. It’s a career that offers the reward of helping people in need while also earning a good living. Search for Dialysis RN Jobs and Dialysis Technician Jobs at Foundation Medical Staffing.
