By Alyssa Rege 

Glassdoor released its annual list of the 50 Best Jobs in America on Jan. 23.

To determine the rankings, they weighed three factors to provide each occupation with an overall Job Score: earning potential, overall job satisfaction and number of job openings. The Glassdoor Job Score is based on a five-point scale.

To be considered, each job must have received at least 100 salary reports and at least 100 job satisfaction ratings by U.S. employees during the past year.

The seven best healthcare jobs in 2019:
