2. There are tons of options.

No matter what sort of education or experience you have, you can apply yourself to a healthcare career. The thought of blood make you squeamish? Careers in healthcare administration or medical coding/billing involve little to no interaction with patients. Love interacting with people? Nurses and medical assistants are often the first people to see a patient when they come into a hospital or clinic. You’ll get tons of exposure to a large variety of patients. Because there are so many healthcare jobs, you’re bound to find one that suits your interests.

3. You don’t need an advanced degree.

Despite what you may think, most healthcare careers don’t require an advanced degree. Physicians actually make up only a small portion of healthcare professionals. There are dozens of careers that ask for just an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. Don’t let a perceived lack of education keep you from working in healthcare.
