Ten-Step Guide to a Career in Healthcare

AllHealthCare

Step 5: Get Into a Healthcare Degree Program

With a shortage of healthcare professionals comes a shortage of healthcare professors. This means that the already-competitive process for getting into healthcare school is getting even more cutthroat. While you are getting ready to apply for school, keep these things in mind:

Grades
Make sure you keep your grades up to speed, as this will help you in the long run. The prerequisites can be difficult, but when you get into your degree program, school becomes that much more challenging. Master the art of getting good grades now, and healthcare classes later will be that much easier for you. You can always look to AllHealthCare for study guides and tips, and you can use our discussion area to ask seasoned veterans and students for some good studying and test-taking strategies.

    I've carefully considered a career change into the healthcare field for some time. According to the suggestions listed here, I am half-way through the process. The biggest obstacle I've faced is finding an externship that will allow me to acquire the hours needed before I can register for taking the licencing exam (Pharmacy Technician). This article was very useful in assuring me that I'm doing things in the right order!

    I love working with people. I worked in a hospital in Ill. I worked on the major menical floor for 1!/2 years and in ICU and CCU for 11/2 years. I would love to go on and continue in some type of nursing. I loved it. I also worked in recovery room after surgery and in the emergency room on and off. It was challeging.
