I been thinking about for years... adding sometime of medical certification with my IT degree certs. At one extreme there is the option of going to Nursing school for two years and becoming a Registered Nurse in addition to my IT skills. I knew a director of the IT department at a hospital who was first a nurse and then later got her masters in Management Information Systems along with a lot of technical certifications.
There also is maybe the option of doing medical coding or medical IT program online. It's something probably should of done years ago... since my age is now *sigh* 39 lol. I got bachelors in CIS and lots of certs, Masters in Education w/ teaching license, CDL Class A. Worked in Education sector, a couple IT jobs, and for a little bit as a truck driver... Now I'm thinking going back... again to school for something medical to add to resume. I am currently in in IT job now, but job offers from other companies are awful and slim. Most good paying job offers I get are for OTR Truck Driving jobs. Companies email me and call me up on the phone every week to come work for them as an OTR Truck Driver... Since I am Married wife says she is leaving me if I am away from home on a truck
I kind don't know if the medical IT or coding would do any good... maybe. From doing searches on job sites all listings are under Register Nurse or LPN... So almost thinking about trying some nursing either LPN or RN.
