If you can pass the rigorous training program, nursing jobs are increasingly available, due to the aging US population, as well as the proliferation of healthcare services. Occupational therapists treat patients with injuries, illnesses, or disabilities through the therapeutic application of directed activities. Occupational therapy assistants work under the direction of occupational therapists in treating patients. Registered nurses (RN), and licensed vocational nurses (LVN), provide patient care and emotional support. Diagnostic medical sonographers use ultrasound imaging equipment that directs sound waves into a patient’s body in order to diagnose medical conditions.

Research various nursing degree programs that meet your requirements. The CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) is the first step in becoming a nurse. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to begin working immediately. The next step after the CNA degree is to become an LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or LVN ( Licensed Vocational Nurse). Practice requirements for LPNs vary from state to state, but basic duties include passing meds, wound care, and administering feeding tubes. Students will receive classroom instruction and clinical training in hospitals and other medical settings. Although ASN programs provide students with nursing training, a bachelor's degree provides greater clinical experiences. An RN has to cope with more responsibility, and oversees the work of LPNs and CNAs under their supervision. Please check with your state board of nursing for practical details and specific exams that you must pass in order to become board certified.

Business & Medical Job Listings

Although most jobs which pay six-figure salaries require a college degree, technical fields offer high salaries based more on ability than which school you graduated from. Students will impress future bosses more with an impressive portfolio than with an advanced degree, so practice your skills as a consultant for local companies. Candidates with prior industry experience are preferred by interviewers, so you resume must show a clear pattern of success over time, based on numeric results and personal achievements.

In order to become an RN (Registered Nurse), a bachelors degree in nursing is recommended. RN's command a greater salary, and are responsible for an enlarged scope of practice over LPNs and CNAs. Students will receive classroom instruction and clinical training in a hospital setting. A 4-year BSN program allows students to further specialize in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and mental health. After completing your nursing education, you must be licensed by the state in which you'll be practicing, given that state boards of nursing each have specific certification requirements.
