In the healthcare industry there aren’t enough Nurses or Medical Assistants to fill the available jobs, and that shortage is only supposed to become greater as the population ages. The American Nurses Association predicts there will be more registered nurse jobs available through 2022 than any other profession in the country.* The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 1.1 million additional nurses are needed to avoid a further shortage, and it predicts the job outlook for medical assistants will grow by 29 percent through 2026.**
That’s why our focus at Eagle Gate College is solely on Nursing and Medical Assisting. It’s comforting for our students to know that the day they graduate, their job opportunities will be plentiful. And we’ve tailored our programs to make that happen in the shortest practical time.
