How the Pharmacy Job Growth Boom Is Getting Bigger in Louisiana

June 22, 2021 Comments Off on How the Pharmacy Job Growth Boom Is Getting Bigger in Louisiana By admin

A pharmacist in Louisiana is the latest industry leader to say that the pharmacist job boom is getting bigger in the state.

A spokesperson for the Louisiana Health and Hospitals Association (LHSA) says there are more than 1,400 jobs available in the pharmacy business in the Louisiana state capital, Baton Rouge.

Pharmacists are often the first line of defense for the public in a health emergency, and the LHA says more than 2,000 pharmacists in the city of New Orleans are now working full time.

The spokesperson says there is also a shortage of primary care pharmacists across the state, and many Louisiana pharmacies are now offering part-time positions.

The LA Times reported that a majority of Louisiana’s pharmacists were union members when the recession began in 2009, and most have since returned to their jobs.

Many of the jobs were created in Louisiana’s fast-growing and expanding health care industry, and have allowed the state to maintain its rank among the most-populous in the nation.

LHA spokesperson Stephanie Smith said the LHOA’s job growth projections in the next five years are up to 2.8 million, up from 2.6 million last year.
