Overview

Health Care Job Explosion offers a distinct advantage over other books of this type. It is two books in one - a comprehensive CAREER GUIDE plus a dynamic JOB FINDER. First, it provides a detailed description of each of the major health care career fields. Second, comprehensive resources are listed for job announcements (publications with job ads, job hotlines, and job fairs), placement services, directories, and general information (associations, and job related books). This dual format permits comparisons between specialties and offers insight into qualifications, cross training potential, and pay. You may locate occupations with similar skills and required training. There are opportunities for all levels of education from a high school diploma or less to Doctorate Degrees. Some hospitals and nursing facilities provide training or tuition assistance. Each occupational description listed in the this book describes the required education and/or on-the-job training.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
With its simple presentation, current facts, and career advice from those in the trenches, the fourth edition of this all-inclusive resource will motivate patrons looking for a job in the health services field. Damp (The Book of U.S. Government Jobs) cites projections from the Bureau of Labor Statistics that one out of every five new jobs created by 2014 will be in the health services field. Readers get helpful tips and guidance about the application and interview process. The third chapter presents an array of useful professional resources including books, job fairs, associations, and web sites. Damp then moves on to cover specific health services fields and the relevant jobs within each category (e.g., health technicians, pharmacy, therapy, nursing, social services, home healthcare). For each job, he covers the significant points such as working conditions, necessary training, employment outlook, and earnings. The first appendix discusses healthcare corporations as a high-growth area for possible employment; the second appendix provides scholarship and tuition information. Overall, this inexpensive resource acts as a great starting point for someone considering a field where there is an ever-increasing demand for personnel. Recommended for all public libraries.
