Are physical therapist assistants in high demand?

When compared to the average United States occupation, physical therapist assistants are in very high demand.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), from 2019-2029 the projected increase in PTA employment is 33% - compared to the national average of 4% across all occupations.* The BLS notes there should be many job opportunities in nursing homes, home healthcare facilities and outpatient orthopedic facilities.

Given the above average projected increase in employment, now is a great time to earn your degree, get certified and enter a rapidly growing field in healthcare.
