What Jobs Will Healthcare Stimulus Funding Create?

What Jobs Will Healthcare Stimulus Funding Create?

Josh Rossheim / Monster Senior Contributing Writer

Medical Jobs in Community Health

The Recovery Act also includes money to boost primary care at community health centers, which typically serve the uninsured and underinsured and collect from patients only a small percentage of the cost of services rendered.

Stimulus money for the nation’s 1,200 community health centers “should create about 8,000 jobs,” says Dan Hawkins, senior vice president for policy and programs at the National Association of Community Health Centers. These jobs will include doctors, dentists, pharmacists, RNs, nurse aides, lab technicians, outreach workers and drivers.

Of those 8,000 new jobs, 5,500 had already been created by mid-March 2009 with $155 million in stimulus funds, according to Health Resources and Services Administration spokesman David Bowman.

The Recovery Act also includes $85 million in funding for the Indian Health Service to develop projects such as telehealth services.

    I am interesting in pursuing my BSN to MSN; however, it is a slow process because of finances. Can you tell me where to look regarding financial grants regarding this stimulus package?

    UCLA has EMRs. I was a unit secretary, and everything was computerized. I was told after I complete my RN, I can apply there as a RN. I am looking forward to getting my MSN there, they have a great program for continue education in nursing.

    I have many years of experience in Home Health Care. In this field it is important to be able to rapidly access a patient and analyze what is wrong with them and how they are responding to treatment.is current treatment effective or not. Also it is important to assess wheather or not there are any other health problems impinging on a patients recovery.

    "I am a new graduate and I have found it very hard to find a job. Most hospitals, if not all, want to hire nurses with experience. How am i supposed to get experience if no one will hire me?"

    My name is Charlesetta Moss and I'm starting school in May. I'm 47 years old and I found out what my purpose is. My purpose on this earth is to be a Nurse. Please do not get into a career just for the money. Get into a career because it is your destiny to become what God intended you to be. Because where your purpose is ; is where your wealth is. Ive been working for Henry Hospital for 13 years as a Medical Records Anaylst I and now its time to step into my purpose.

    In North East Tennessee, nurses, and other health care workers are being laid off and hiring is on hold. Surgery cases are way down in most hospitals from Kingsport to Knoxville. It will be interesting to see what happens.

    Being a nurse of 17 years and wanting to further my education, I am finding a lot of schools telling me that I make too much money to obtain financial assistance unless I take out a loan. I have 2 children in college as well I don't want any more debt and I am finding young high school graduates getting the scholarships. What gives. I can obtain my goal faster and assist in the instruction of the young graduates when they enter college. Why not help us older ones out a bit?

    this all sounds good in writing. I have outstanding loan debt from nursing school and cannot afford to make the payments. Even with help of the government paying off school loans, it is a timely process and not everyone will qualify.

    This is great news!! I am currently a nurse working in the IT field and we have been concerned that due to the economy our jobs would be effected. It is comforting to know that is not the case.
