Technical Degree Programs

While some fields insist that you have a four-year degree just to get a job interview, other high-paying careers like computer programming, health care, or small business administration, may be entered with an associates degree. An associates degree is a two-year program that either results in an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree. Some careers that require an associates degree include becoming a dental assistant, occupational or physical therapy assistant, or licensed practical nurse (LPN). The greatest downside to an associates degrees in the job market is only that you will be competing with individuals holding bachelors degrees. Therefore, make sure you're comfortable in the niche you've chosen.

Business

Many young people are natural business entrepreneurs, raised with new technology such as developing apps for the iPad and iPhone. Business majors may focus on starting their own small business, if the job market is tight. Candidates with prior industry experience are preferred by interviewers, but an applicant's past experience must be relevant to the particular job vacancy that the company needs to fill. Your resume must show a clear pattern of success over time, based on numeric results and personal achievements. Companies frequently publish rankings, offer various awards and incentives, and conduct monthly reviews of employee performance. Seek out a mentor with maturity and the connections to help you find the most direct path to advancement in your industry.

The main challenge in getting your degree is to choose a career that you will enjoy, and can pursue for many years. The job vacancies for website designers are still increasing, as retail firms move a greater percentage of their business online. Also, as the healthcare industry relies heavily on electronic medical records, protecting patients' personal data takes priority.

Nursing:

There is indeed a shortage of nurses, but please be aware that the education required is very challenging. Community colleges offer an Associate of Science degree in Nursing, and some diploma programs also award certificates in practical nursing. Nurse training can take a long time to complete, based on your ability to learn, and whether you are able to attend nursing school full-time. A licensed vocational nurse (LVN) may provide basic patient care and perform tasks that do not require advanced nursing skills. They cannot administer medication, or provide IV (intravenous) therapy. Review your knowledge of anatomy on this page. After you begin work, the hospital or clinic that you are working for may offer tuition assistance to help attain an advanced degree.

Nursing & Medical Job Listings

Earning a CNA degree (Certified Nursing Assistant) is the first step towards becoming a fully-qualified nurse. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to join the workforce quickly. The next step in a nursing career is to become a LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or LVN ( Licensed Vocational Nurse). These are year-long programs, in which you'll work under an RN distributing meds, treating wounds, and providing basic patient care.

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.
