If you answered YES to seven or more of the questions the health care field might be the right career for you!

Points to consider:

Do you have what it takes? Each health care field has its own specific demands on your interests, abilities, and education, but there are some qualities that are necessary for all health care professions. You've got to be a certain kind of person to work well in health care: one who is cooperative, mature, responsible, and accurate.

You may be working one-on-one with a single patient or assisting other health professionals, either way you are still always part of a team. It's important to be able to express yourself and your opinions to others and to be able to take their ideas into consideration. Most importantly you must remember the patient's well being is the most important goal. Cooperation is a necessity in all heath careers. You need to be mature and responsible in your actions because people depend on you.

In some health careers, you will be working with patients at different stages in their illness, or rehabilitation. In others, you won't be working with patients directly, and in some cases you won't work with patients at all.  Some careers will find you working in a hospital or clinical setting. Some careers may have you working in a school, a nursing home, industry, or even in an office of your own.

Okay, so which one?

The choices are many and varied, so how do you decide which career in healthcare might be right for you? Your options can be divided into categories based on some of your general interests and skills.
