8-19-2019 Tina Rains: Health Industry Employment Trends
For our August 19, 2019 meeting, Tina Rains, RN, Ascend Recruiter President and CEO/CNO told us about employment trends in the healthcare industry.  She reported that healthcare industry represents 32% of the temporary employment provided by staffing firms in Florida during 2018, the next largest industry served by staffing firms was engineering, IT, and scientific at 21%.
 
Tina explained that the increase in U.S. population is driving the demand for healthcare staffing companies. The nurse shortage in the U.S. is increasing the demand for nurses in hospitals and community services which is expected to grow 14 percent to 16 percent between 2015 and 2021. Around 55 percent of the nurse workforce is 50 years old or above, which means there will be around 526,800 nurses retiring over the next five years. These retiring nurses will also drive workforce demand. Furthermore, as the nurse employment workforce increases from 2.86 million in 2012 to an expected 3.44 million in 2022, the demand will boost in the home healthcare workforce, including nutritionists, therapists and home care aids.
 
Tina started her first office and healthcare staffing service in 1995 and has worked with facilities of all types and sizes, leaders from all specialties. She has  recruited a team of leaders that have extensive experience and decades of experience recruiting the highest quality leaders and consultants to serve healthcare organizations.  Tina earned her RN from New Mexico Junior College, attended College of the Southwest for business studies, and attended John Maxwell Online University for Leadership, Speaker and Coaching.
