Healthcare is the fastest-growing employment industry, with more than 2.4 million new jobs expected by 2026, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (bls.gov). Demand for Cancer Registrars is also increasing with the Bureau of Labor Statistics projecting more than 20% growth over the next three to five years (much faster than the average for all other occupations).
Cancer registrars work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, central or state cancer registries, accrediting organizations, government agencies, software vendors, pharmaceutical companies, insurance agencies and more. Working remotely is also a growing trend for cancer registrars, and some registrars work for outsourcing companies hired by hospitals to staff their cancer registry. According to the National Cancer Registrars Association (NCRA), the average salary for a full-time registrar in 2022 was between $62,106 and $99,195 depending on years of experience.
Some employers require cancer registry professionals to be Certified Tumor Registrars® (CTR). The CTR credential demonstrates a requisite knowledge and professional competence needed within the cancer registry. It is nationally recognized in the recruitment and retention of registry personnel. In order to sit for the CTR exam, students must graduate from an NCRA-Accredited Program (like ours).
