The Workforce Development Center at Rowan College of
South Jersey (RCSJ) –Gloucester Campus will hold an information session for
prospective students interested in applying for Certified Nurse Aide, Patient
Care Technician, Central Service Technician and Pharmacy Technician classes on
Monday, Nov. 4, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in room 801. Professionals from the health care
field will present information about the RCSJ training program, and College
staff will be available to provide application requirements.
The outlook for health care employment is bright. According
to the New Jersey “Regional Plan for the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity
Act,” health care is one of Gloucester County’s top five occupations in terms
of net employment. It is the only industry that has added jobs in the state
every year from 1990 through 2017 while increasing its share of jobholding from
7.5 percent in 1990 to 11.9 percent in 2017. From 2016 through 2026, it is
projected that 78,300 jobs will be added, an annual increase of 1.5 percent.
