Pathway to a career in health care

Over half of the  "100 Best Jobs" are in health care, health care support or science, according to U.S. News & World Report. So while a career in health care is a no-brainer, a bigger challenge is choosing the specific profession that's right for you. How and where should you pursue the required education? What kind of career opportunities will there be? These can be daunting questions for anyone.

Teachers And Student With MicroscopeIf you're considering a career in health care, your undergraduate degree in biomedical sciences can be a great place to start. This degree puts you on the path toward a career in health care. While you're completing your degree, you can continue to explore your next health care move.

At National University, you will be at the same campus as students who are earning their advanced degrees in several health care fields. This type of environment will allow you to explore your options much more in-depth.

You can choose from graduate programs in chiropractic medicine (DC), naturopathic medicine (ND) and oriental medicine (MSOM) and acupuncture (MSAc). With more Americans choosing complementary and alternative medicine treatments (about 4 in 10, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services), it is an exciting field to be in. An additional advantage is that Bachelor of Biomedical Science students at NUHS can save up to a year off their education by combining a BS with either a DC or an ND degree.

You also have the option of earning your doctor of chiropractic (DC) degree from our Florida site. National University's program is offered at the St. Petersburg College located near Tampa Bay, an area experiencing some of the highest demand for health care workers, according to ABC News.

National University's BS degree is an excellent gateway to a prospering career in healthcare. Contact Undergraduate Admissions Counselor Deb Cascio at dcascio@nuhs.edu or (630) 889-6577 to learn more.
