The health care field provides numerous options to meet your goals and lifestyle. For example, if hands-on care isn’t a personal passion, nurses can branch out into related jobs such as administration, research, teaching, care management, and counseling.

If you don’t want to commit the two years to earn a nursing degree, you can first take a course at St. Peter’s Health Partners to become a certified nursing assistant, patient care technician or home health aide. If and when you want to advance your education, St. Peter’s offers tuition assistance.

As for scheduling, health care offers a variety of flexible options. Persons with other family or school obligations may work evenings, nights or weekends.

In recognizing the crucial role allied health professionals play in the care of our patients, residents and clients, St. Peter’s presents a professional culture, career support, medical resources, and the opportunities employees seek.

On Tuesday, May 29, 2018, St. Peter’s Health Partners is hosting a Job Fair on its Samaritan Hospital campus from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., in the Krause Center, 2212 Burdett Ave., Troy.
