The Number of Open LTC Jobs Continues to Increase



There are 33,342 open jobs posted by direct employers in the nursing care facility (including SNFs), assisted living, and continuing care retirement community (CCRC) sectors this month according to the latest CEB TalentNeuron statistics That represents an increase of nearly 1,000 open positions in the last month that are posted by long term care employers.   

The CEB TalentNeuron statistics also show an estimated 2,101,000 potential candidates in the nation’s workforce whose skills likely match the qualifications being sought by long term care employers. Figures show that 2,336 direct employers are competing for candidates this month – -about the same number as April. The average number of days a job was posted decreased by four days in May to 35 days.     

Finding qualified employees is one of the greatest challenges facing long term care providers and May’s statistics prove that the challenge is only growing in the strong economy with a decreasing unemployment rate. The AHCA/NCAL Long Term Care Career Center is designed to help members be competitive in attracting qualified candidates to fill their health care job vacancies. The LTC Career Center works because it attracts top health care candidates and employers. It is also fully integrated with Google’s job search feature “Google for Jobs” creating greater exposure for job postings.

Employers are also able to post vacancies as they occur and search resumes on the network.
