For the past ten years, the Health Care sector has created an average of 278,000 jobs nationwide annually, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. At the start of this year, Health Care jobs were on the rise in the ZipRecruiter employment marketplace before we saw much impact from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Now, jobs are declining in some parts of the sector because patients are canceling routine care and elective procedures. But opportunities for job seekers in some specialties are still rising.  

The intensity and timing of the coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic in the U.S. will vary by location. The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics has put out a model projecting that some states will see peak infection rates as early as Mid-April, while others will not see their peak until mid-May. 

Travel Nurse jobs are up 91% over the last month and Travel Med-Surg Nurse jobs are up 75% over that period. These jobs allow hospitals to meet fluctuating staffing needs. Many states are considering or are currently waiving in-state licensing requirements for health care providers

In the last week of February, Telemedicine or Telehealth pages were 8% of the top Health Care pages visited from external referrals. This week 24% of our top Health Care pages are related to Telehealth and Telemedicine jobs.


Health Care occupations directly related to the preparation for, and response to, coronavirus (COVID-19) are increasing daily average job postings as hospitals and other medical facilities continue hiring to meet growing staffing needs. 

Despite the general decline in the industry, we see an increase in some Health Care jobs that are not on the front lines of, or directly related to, the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19):
