The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts a 21.7 percent increase in employment in health occupations between 2006 and 20016. This is excellent news for you if you earn one of the many college certificates available in health care, either through online or on-campus education.
There is a huge range of occupations in the health care industry. Your education could equip you to work in either direct patient care or in a support service such as health care administration. Certificate programs in health care may be useful for earning entry-level positions, such as medical and health service assistants, dental hygienists, and home health aides.
