Healthcare is a huge industry in many countries around the world. Therefore, it would make absolutely perfect sense that a large industry such as healthcare would be bursting at the seams with an abundance of good opportunities for people who have enough tenacity to pursue it as a career. A number of very compelling reasons exist for considering a career pathway in the healthcare field. Keep reading to unearth some of these reasons!
REASON 1: Healthcare workplaces tend to be very interesting.
It is true: there is hardly ever a dull moment in healthcare. There will always be a new admission, discharge, interesting medical conditions, entertaining family members, helpful coworkers, changing workflows, and learning opportunities to keep your days at work filled with excitement. Healthcare work environments such as hospitals and skilled nursing facilities tend to be particularly interesting workplaces.
REASON 2: Healthcare jobs are associated with good pay and benefits.
The majority of healthcare job openings are for full-time positions that offer steady pay, decent benefit packages, and the potential for wage increases. In addition to the pay, the benefit packages are worth some money, too! Benefits such as employer-sponsored health insurance, paid time off, vacation hours, sick pay and life insurance cost the employer money while financially benefiting you.
Also, many employers provide a perk known as 401k matching. In other words, if a worker contributes a certain amount of money to a 401k retirement account, the employer will actually match it by contributing the exact same amount. This can result in thousands of free dollars to the employee every year if regular 401k contributions are made. 401k matching is a fringe benefit that cannot be beat!
REASON 3: Some healthcare jobs do not require many years of training.
A number of the most popular healthcare jobs do not require many years of education or training. For example, an individual can become a certified nursing assistant (CNA) in just a few short weeks. A person can study to become a medical assistant in a few short months. Moreover, someone can become a licensed practical nurse (LPN), known as a licensed vocational nurse (LVN) in Texas and California, in about a year.
