We need teachers. We need nurses. We probably need primary care doctors, especially in "underserved" areas. We will need grunt health care workers for an aging population.

I should point out that we are laying off teachers left and right, that most of the need for teachers comes for populations that are having children, disproportionately the poor and immigrants, and that when it comes to physicians, the reimbursement schedules favor high end interventions and sub-specialists, so with heavier and heavier debts for those attending medical school, primary care is in disfavor and the primary care jobs in rural and urban areas are largely being filled by immigrants.
