percent in 2010
The health care industry has been the driving force of
employment in New Jersey over the last two decades

sector has added 164,700 new jobs, while all
other industries combined have had a net gain
of only 54,700
(1990=100)
Employment in Ambulatory Health Care
Services and Nursing and Residential Care
Facilities has nearly doubled over the last 20
years
Slow, and recently stagnant, growth in
Hospital employment has led to it being the
laggard among Health Care’s three major
components
Source: Current Employment Statistics
With employment surpassing 420,000, the health care sector
accounts for over 11% of all employment in the state in 2010, up
from 7.5% in 1990
Ambulatory Health Care Services surpassed
Hospitals as the top employer in the Health
Care sector in 2003, and has widened the gap
every subsequent year
Nursing and Residential Care Facilities, the
smallest component, has grown more than
three times the rate (3.1%) of Hospitals (1.0%)
since 1990
Together, the three Health Care components
have grown by 2.4% annually since 1990,
compared to only 0.3% for total nonfarm
employment and a job decline for all private
sector excluding health care

Females outnumber males by a 3 to 1
margin in the health care workforce
The workforce is far more diverse than
average, particularly among the black and
Asian population
The workforce has just slightly fewer
Hispanics than average

The health care industry has steadily gained employment
over the last 20 years and will continue that trend through
2018
Employment is still growing, but getting
slower
• Grew by 3% per year during 1990s
• Grew by 2% per year during 2000s
• Projected to grow by 1.3% from 20082018
There will still be many opportunities for
employment as the industry struggles to
increase workforce for growing demand while
also replacing workers who will retire
The health care cluster is projected to add
over 56,000 jobs, and account for more
than 45% of net job growth from 20082018

New Jersey Health Care Workforce Council
Employers
Education
Workforce
The Health Care Workforce Council mission is to strengthen New Jersey’s health
care workforce to support a sustainable, quality health care system for the good of
the State and all of its residents.
The Council makes recommendations to the State Employment and Training
Commission to ensure quality workforce investments to meet the needs of health
care employers for a highly-trained and diverse workforce, which will benefit
individuals who are starting or advancing in health care careers.
Health care workforce issues being addressed by the Council:
Data
The need for shared, coordinated
state health care workforce data
that is meaningful and accessible.
Models
Need for greater
collaborative learning
linking fields/disciplines and
transcending the isolation
of silos.
How will changes in health
care delivery change the
health care workforce?
Pipelines
Pathways
What is the current health
care occupation demand
and supply? What will be
needed in the future?
Clarify health care career
pathways and improve
career entry and up
skilling.
Greater alignment of
training and education
with current and future
workplace needs.
