Skilled Nursing and Long-term Care: As the population continues to age, there will be an even greater need for allied health professionals. Skilled nursing facilities need registered nurses, rehabilitation therapists, and occupational therapists, to name a few.
Acute Care and Hospitals: Patients who need short-term care like respiratory therapy, post-surgery recovery, and emergency services spend time in acute care facilities.

Acute care facilities, private practices, medical facilities, and specialized hospitals (memory care, oncology, children, etc.) are just a few. In 2016, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 335,700 medical and clinical laboratory technicians were employed, and that number and associated opportunities will continue to grow.
