    Hey my name is Cj and I am 24 years old and need help bad. All I know is that I want to be a doctor,but since you can get any degree to apply to med school, I am confused. What's the best degree in the science field where I can get paid decent pay before I enter or (get accepted) into med school. I love science (chemistry , the most) so anything to do with science ., I am all for it! What about Pharmacy?

    Hello,
    My name is Joanne and in addition to all those other positions above, the position of Medical Technologist is in extremely High Demand. How come this position has not been included? I myself am a Med Tech and have noticed that we are unable to find staffing because there is not enough advertisement and mention of the need for this job position. If it weren't for Medical Technologists, nurses and physicians would not have the test results for their patients in order to come up with a diagnosis. This is really sad.

    If what I read is to be considered correct I believe that this is false because I am a medical assistant and also a medical biller and coder and can't find a job in the medical field because I am over 60 years old and have no experience in either field. I had and X-ray license but I let it laps because I couldn't find a job. No experience, No job.

    I am a certified respiratory therapist and I have been unable to find work in my area. I have been unemployed for just over 4 months now. My only options now are to take on a different type of job and try to go back to school or to relocate to an area where there are larger hospitals with more resp. therapy jobs. My advice to anyone looking into a healthcare career, do your research BEFORE you even get started. Thinking that "healthcare careers are golden" is a myth; RN jobs are plentiful everywhere, but if it is radilogic technician, or respiratory therapist, you have to look into it deeper. If you want to live in a certain area, do a job hunt and see what kinds of openings they have. Are there openings for the career you want? How many hospitals in that area? If the situation for a physical therapy asst. looks bleak in your area, and you don't want to relocate, you may need to find a job path better suited for that area. If I could go back and do it over, I believe I would have put myself on the waiting list for nursing school. Yes, it may take 2 yrs of waiting, but I have never met an RN who could not get a job. It may not be the perfect job, they may not LOVE it, but at least they have one. In these difficult times, that matters alot.

    I think medical records or codeing will be best for me since I know a little about tracking births for people.

    I am a RN with a useless BSN degree. I want out! but would like to use my knowledge and 6 years of experience to find a non-clinical job. I have even thought of medical transcription due to work at home potential. Does ANYONE have thought or advice to obtaining a new career.
