Health Care Jobs Still Recession Proof, Says February Report

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

On the second floor of the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas, a controversial tourist attraction draws medical professionals, students and curiosity seekers from around the world.

It is “The Bodies” exhibit, a collection of real human bodies, displayed in a museum-type format. This fascinating educational walking tour covers every part of the body in intricate detail, leaving onlookers with a greater understanding of how complex, yet awesome, our bodies are.

But there is no need to travel to Las Vegas to study the body. Those who are interested in focusing upon the anatomy, care and health of the human body may wish to consider pursuing a career in one of the health professions by enrolling in an online degree program.

According to the New York Times article, “Job Losses Hint at Vast Remaking of Economy” (3-7-09):

“Transportation and warehousing lost 49,000 jobs in February. Employment services shrank by 88,000 jobs. Hotels and restaurants lost 32,000 jobs. Health care remained a rare bright spot, adding 30,000 jobs.”

Even during a recession, with millions of jobs having disappeared, health care continues to be a promising career field of opportunity. Online degree and certificate programs are available in nursing, dental hygiene, medical office, medical coding & billing, health care administration and pharmacy.

Although some health care programs require completion of practical or on-the-job training, others are offered completely online. This e-learning option saves travel time and expenses.

Judging from the constant flow of people into “The Bodies” exhibit, there is no shortage of interest in human anatomy. But for those who want to take their desire for knowledge a step further, an online degree in health care may be the ticket to a recession-proof career.
