According to a recent study, the best recession-proof jobs are those in health care. In fact, more than one in four HR executives picked health care as the best bet for job security. There are plentiful opportunities to get meaningful, well paying work in healthcare. If you have your high school diploma or GED, you can step into a world of exciting learning opportunities that will prepare you for a lifetime of solid employment and deep personal satisfaction.
CourseAdvisor’s Guide to Health Care Careers explains why it is a great time to become a nurse. Over 40 percent of this country’s nurses are in their fifties and beyond, and for many of them retirement is just around the corner. At the same time, the overall population is getting older and requiring more medical care. In fact, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that by 2020 the healthcare workforce may need one million nurses to fill the gap.
Now could be the perfect time to pursue a career in Health Care!

I am intereswted in learning medical coding only.
Trust me, don't just consider medical billing and coding. At the end of the course, the instructor will tell you to consider becoming certified. Certifications are great credentials, they improve your marketing power, they create better job security and greater career advancement opportunities. However, medical billing and coding only covers the administration process. You might want to look into, medical assistant. Find a program that offers administrative and "clinical" duties. The administrative area covers billing and coding plus you'll gain added skills/knowldege than just taking medical billing and coding. I would know, I just finished a program in medical billing and coding. It was a 3 month crash course. And, if I was able to go back and change, I would of participated in the medical assistant program. Because when you consider taking the exam for CMA under AAMA, the exam content outlines other topics that you'll need to learn aside from billing and coding.

to everyone wondering what to do with their career...i highly suggest that you consider becomming a nurse..its a great field with great opportunities and theres room for advancement! you could even work as a nurse practitioner one day and would be able to do almost anything a doctor does. But wait! it gets better..some RN programs only take two years to complete and you'll be eligible to take the n-clex exam and become a licensed RN...so if your thinking about it or having any doubts just take a chance and do it..you wont regret it! :)
