Is One Degree or Program the Route to a Healthcare Career?

You may think a job in health care requires years of medical school and training, but that may not be true. Yes, if you want to perform brain surgery, then you may have more than ten years of training ahead of you. But, many of the healthcare specialties may only require a certificate or associate’s degree. These may include registered nursing and dental hygiene. Home health aides receive on-the-job training; while licensed practical and licensed vocational nurses may have to complete one-year training programs. Physician assistants may need a master's degree.
