Future prospects for those who plan to enter the healthcare administration field will be particularly bright in the coming decade.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, available positions for healthcare administrators are expected to increase by sixteen percent by 2018.  Meanwhile, the rate of growth in available positions is expected to outstrip the number of qualified candidates for these jobs.  The resulting high demand for healthcare managers will help spur salary growth for the foreseeable future.
