Why Should You Work In Healthcare?

If you want to pursue a stable, rewarding new career but can’t decide which industry is the best fit for your life, consider the benefits of working in healthcare.

1. Job Security

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, national employment within the healthcare field is projected to grow 19 percent between the years 2014 and 2024. Adding about 2.3 million jobs within that time period, this sector is growing significantly faster than the national average for all other occupations.

This is due in part to a largely aging population plus a number of federal health insurance reforms. These forces combined will soon spur a surplus of available healthcare careers within the next decade. This industry will add more jobs than any other group of occupations. In fact, this trend is already noticeable today, with eight of the top 20 fastest growing careers at this time falling under the umbrella of healthcare.

When choosing a future path for your career, growth like this is important. You can rest easily knowing that the time you invest in your career training will pay off when you’re able to find a job after graduation without difficulty.

2. Get Started Sooner

Unlike other careers that require you to invest years of time and hundreds of thousands of dollars into your education, healthcare careers are available to people of all education and experience levels- meaning you won’t have to wait years to get started or go into debt in order to embark on this exciting new career path. With NYICD, you’ll become certified within a matter of months. This time next year, you won’t be stuck completing course requirements at a university, years from graduation and racking up overwhelming student loans.

3. Make a Difference

When it comes to finding a rewarding career, it’s important to consider how your job will make you feel at the end of the day. If the work you’re doing doesn’t make you feel good about yourself, is it really worth it? When working in the healthcare sector, you’re able to touch the lives of people in your community. Healthcare professionals are able to change lives for the better every day, impacting families in need of care and support during difficult times. Knowing this, surely a career within this field is one that you can spend your life feeling good about.
