Workers Who Care: A Graphical Profile of the Frontline Health and Health Care Workforce

Workers Who Care: A Graphical Profile of the Frontline Health and Health Care Workforce (248 pages, PDF) charts information on the employment, occupational growth, wages, and demographics of front-line health professionals and paraprofessionals who provide a wide range of direct patient care and other health services. The report from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation finds that workers' jobs generally pay less than other healthcare occupations, require no more than a bachelor's degree or on-the-job training, and provide little opportunity for career advancement.
