LiveSmart: Looking for a Great Career? Think Health Care!

If you’re just starting out work or considering changing fields, a rewarding and challenging career in health care may be what you’re seeking.

Not only do you get the satisfaction of helping people every day, the jobs provide excellent pay and benefits; flexible scheduling; a career path for advancement; and a chance to work in a high-tech environment with other dedicated professionals in a variety of settings.

Economists at the Labor Department project that from 2019 to 2029 employment in health care in the United States will grow 15 percent, much faster than the average for all occupations, adding about 2.4 million new jobs during that decade.

Spurring the expected growth: care for the aging baby-boom population; longer life spans; and persistent growth in the number of patients with chronic conditions. Growth positions include registered and licensed practical nurses, home health aides, nursing aides, respiratory therapists, medical assistants, dietitians, and other related jobs.

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.
