Staffing Industry Analysts US Staffing Industry Forecast predicts that US healthcare staffing will grow by 17% in 2016. All four healthcare staffing sub-segments: -travel nursing, per diem nursing, locum tenens and allied health, showed double digit growth in 2015.

Reasons for the increase in staffing are many, including tightening US labor supply and Obamacare allowing previously uninsured patients to avail themselves of healthcare services. More details on the report are accessible on their webpage.

MU Law has seen greatly increased demand for foreign-trained nurses, and Physical and Occupational Therapists in 2015, confirming this study's conclusions.
