Healthcare jobs such as registered nurses, LPN's, LVN's and related vocational technicians provide over 15 million jobs in the United States alone. Some health sciences graduates find employment as health technologists and technicians, electronic medical records specialists, billing department personnel, health information technicians, diagnostic medical sonographers, or radiologic technicians. The American Hospital Association is the national organization that represents and serves all types of hospitals, health care networks, and their patients and communities.

The outlook for technical medical careers is especially bright, and opportunities for health sciences program grads are expected to increase by 10% to 20% in the next eight years. The increasing number of elderly people is seen as a primary factor in this growth. As people age they have more medical problems, and hospitals will require more technicians to perform specialized healthcare services. Aside from a good salary, most medical personnel receive comprehensive medical and dental benefits, as well as 401k retirement plans.

Registered Nurse (RN) Programs

To become a Registered Nurse(RN), you will be required to take courses in medical terminology, patient care and life sciences. Although associate degree programs provide students with adequate nursing training, a bachelor's degree provides greater clinical exposure and a stronger general education. A 4-year BSN program allows students to study specialized areas of nursing, including pediatrics, geriatrics and mental health nursing. An RN has to cope with more responsibility, and must oversee the work of LPNs and CNAs under their supervision. If you wish to continue advancement, a masters degree and several years of experience as a nurse, may qualify you for the Nurse Practitioner (NP) credential. Nursing job openings are projected to grow 16 percent over the coming decade, much faster than the average for all occupations. The average salary for nurses with an Associates degree was $43,700 in 2015, while nurses with a Bachelors degree earned $67,490 per year.

Certification requirements include board certification by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). The license period varies by individual state, but is usually valid for either two or three years, at which time you'll need to renew. Registered nurses (RNs) are not required to be certified in a particular specialty by state law. For example, it isn't necessary to be a Certified Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse (CMSRN) to work on a hospital Medical-Surgical (MedSurg) floor, and most MedSurg nurses are not CMSRNs. To keep your license current, you must take continuing education courses, and renew your license every few years. There are a fixed number of credits that each state requires, and if you work in a hospital facility, these courses may be offered on-site.
