Twenty-two recruiters representing the health care industry attended Viterbo’s Nursing Career Fair Thursday. The consensus of all present? “We’re hiring.”
According to Tim Britain, Onalaska branch manager of Brightstar Care, there is a shortage of care providers across the entire spectrum—a shortage he expects to worsen. “About 27 percent of the population in 2030 will be over 60; currently the figure is 14%."
Viterbo expects to graduate more than 90 of its current seniors this academic year.
