“Carrington Colleges Group is proud to celebrate Health Care Recognition month. Our students and staff embody the spirit of what this recognition represents,” said Robert Paul, president of Carrington Colleges Group. “By participating in the month-long events, students will demonstrate their expertise in a real-world environment while also promoting to the community a better awareness of health care.”
Carrington students enrolled in related programs, such as dental hygiene, nursing, medical assisting and respiratory care, will help host the events. The students will use the experience as a learning opportunity to refine their skills and promote career growth within expanding health care fields they can pursue following graduation.
Many career experts point to favorable growth projections by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics for careers in health care fields. For example, employment prospects for qualified dental hygienists are expected to accelerate by approximately 38 percent through 2020, much faster than average. The job outlook for qualified registered nurses (26 percent projected increase through 2020), medical assistants (31 percent projected increase through 2020) and respiratory therapists (28 percent projected increase through 2020) is also extremely promising.
