Thinking about a career change in 2016? Here is a prediction for what to expect:
- There will be more lower-level health care jobs. The Affordable Care Act fully kicks in in 2016, which will mean that millions more people will have to be cared for by our already overtaxed system. This may mean more opportunities for lower-level professionals, including physician assistants, physical therapy assistants and licensed vocational nurses. With the law now mandating parity of physical and mental health services, this also may mean that demand for therapists will grow.
