Senior Care Pharmacists
The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that job opportunities for pharmacists will grow faster than the average through 2018. The number of available positions is expected to exceed the number of people entering the field, mainly due to pharmacists who are retiring or otherwise leaving the field. Although the U.S. Department of Labor does not provide an employment outlook specifically for senior care pharmacists, it does cite the growing elderly population in the United States as a reason for the good job prospects for pharmacists. Senior citizens are expected to take an increasing number of prescription medications as a result of continuing medical advances and new drug research.
