The Everything Guide to Careers in Health Care
Not so long ago, careers in health care were limited. For women they were even more limited.
Today, however, with a shift of emphasis from goods to services, health care is the fastest growing segment of the job market. In the present faltering economy, health care offers some of the most recession-proof opportunities.
There are literally hundreds of career options in health care. This book takes a look at over 60 of the major options including the education needed, the job outlook for the next decade, the work environment, the salary possibilities and the options for advancement in the field.
It also offers insight into the characteristics and unique skills that are needed for these professions and the role and responsibilities of health care professionals. There is advice on self-assessment and how to choose a health care career option, how to get the education necessary, where and how to find your first job, and how to care for yourself so you can continue to help others.
