Health Care Career Outlook

Careers in healthcare look promising for those considering training in a health related field. This is due to several factors, including the aging population, shortages in trained health care workers, and increased demand for both home care and long term care services.

Today’s aging population is living longer, due to advances in health technology. However, they will require ongoing preventive and health maintenance services, to address the common problems associated with the general population and with aging itself. Hospitals and long term care facilities will need reliable, highly trained nurse’s aides, to provide personal care. Charter Health Care Training Center provides the training and skills development necessary to become a certified nursing assistant.

Those who want to consider home health as a career may want to take the bridge program offered by Charter. This program offers training to certified nursing assistants, or those who have completed 75 hours of nurse aid training. It’s designed specifically to develop skills needed to assist patients in a home care setting. Home health care is also expected to grow, as older people choose to remain at home until they die or as long as possible. This population will require frequent monitoring and assistant with self care and with health maintenance activities.

If you’re already a CNA or simply want to acquire some additional skills, Charter has programs for basic life support, AED, CPR, First Aid, and blood-borne pathogens. These additional training programs are often required by hospitals and long term care facilities. Home care agencies will also require some first aid and CPR training of their home health aides. Having the training complete prior to applying, can give a nursing assistant a competitive edge in securing a rewarding position in a facility or home care agency.

Those who don’t want a direct care position, but want to work in a facility, may want to consider the dietary aid training program. This type of training prepares individuals to work in large kitchens in hospitals and long term care facilities, by teaching nutrition, meal planning, sterilization requirements, and many other skills for the position.

    Like the steady march of this Baby Boomer generation, the recommendations for healthy aging have continued to move forward and change as well. My position incorporates the recommendations of numerous health and fitness organizations, findings from the research community, and literature reviews. I suggest that now, just as it was in 2003, the answer to the question, “Can this generation of Americans expect to achieve a satisfying, high-quality life as older adults? is still a resounding yes. But now, I believe there is greater clarity and more specific detail as to exactly what the Baby Boomer generation should be doing to insure that they have the quality of life as older adults that they have become accustomed to in their younger years. To that end, this article will examine both the updated recommendations for physical activity and psychological elements associated with healthy aging.

    This is interesting I have often thought about going in to the healthcare industry and becoming a nurse but I never have because the nurses I know complain about the amount of work they have to do for the amount of pay they get. It doesn’t quite add up when you think about it that way. Thank you for posting this though I will think about it again.

  3. John says:

    I have never understood the turnover rate at the hospitals, how is it that people get so burnt out on helping people? Or is it more they are burnt out on doing most of the work and not getting paid for it? I have never understood that either why is that do you suppose? Very good post however and I enjoyed it very much.

    I am looking to change jobs soon and I was thinking about going into the medical field but until I read this a nurse never entered my mind. This has been a great blog and it has sprouted some new ideas in my head that I hadn’t thought about before. Thank you for sharing this I look forward to looking into it more at first I was going for pharmacist.

    It’s tough to climb the career ladder when you’ve been knocked off the lowest rung by a down economy. I read about an initiative called Project for Pride in Living, it’s a Minneapolis nonprofit that works to help lower-income individuals gain greater self-sufficiency, recently expanded a program to help currently employed and recently laid-off entry-level healthcare workers to get back onto that healthcare career ladder and start climbing. I’m glad there are resources like this that people can turn to when times are tough.

    I’m the business owner of JustCBD Store brand (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently looking to develop my wholesale side of business. I am hoping someone at targetdomain share some guidance 🙂 I considered that the best way to do this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd retailers. I was hoping if someone could suggest a trusted web site where I can get CBD Shops B2B Leads I am currently examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the best solution and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
