Do you have a
special calling to care for others - a genuine interest for the health and wellness of
people, whether children, senior citizens (geriatric) or veterans? Or are you
interested in medical breakthroughs and hearing stories about new advances in
medical treatments and procedures?
Do you often
think about working in a position educating others how to care for themselves
and what risks to avoid? Or maybe teaching other health care professionals how
to care for others so they can grow in their health care job choice. For
example. maybe you would be interested in become a nurse educator. If so, them maybe a career in health care is for you.
Many job titles
include positions such a as a registered nurse (RN), a licensed practical nurse
(LPN), a certified nurse assistant (CNA), a physical therapist, a dental assistant, a
pharmacy technician, a massage therapist, an acupuncturist, or even a hospital
admitting clerk, nurse administrator if you are more business oriented.
If you are
considering a career change, you can consider merging your old position to
target a new position that would utilize your prior experience, knowledge, and
credentials. For example, if you were a nurse and you decided you want to
continue using your nursing experience doing something else, you could work for
a law firm on medical malpractice cases as a legal nurse consultant. They would need a nurse like you to
review the medical records to see if there's a case.
