7 Best Reasons to Get into Healthcare Right Now

6. It’s rewarding.

How do you feel after volunteering at your local homeless shelter, or participating in a mentor program? You feel great, right? How would you like to feel like that on a daily basis? Healthcare workers get to make a difference every day. You don’t have to be a trauma physician to change someone’s life. The nurse who takes an extra ten minutes to get to know her patients, or the rad tech who comforts a nervous patient can have an even greater impact than a surgeon.

7. It’s exciting.

You’re changing lives on a daily basis! How can that not be exciting? Many healthcare workers get to build their careers on excitement and adrenaline. This can be a fast-paced, challenging job where you get to do something different every day. Why sit at a desk when you can be taking vitals, deciphering x-rays, drawing blood, and so much more?
