Explore Health Careers at the Nov. 15 Open House

Open House Health Careers Exploration event

Attend St. Petersburg College’s Health Sciences and Veterinary Technology Open House and Student Success Showcase event to learn more about health careers and the college’s healthcare programs.

Health careers outlook

Employment in healthcare occupations is projected to grow 18 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Healthcare occupations are expected to add about 2.4 million new jobs, more than any of the other occupational groups.

This projected growth is mainly due to an aging population, leading to greater demand for healthcare services.
