I just started college in September. I am going to school to get my Associate's Degree in Health Services Administration. I was just wondering what jobs I could get with it. Where would be the best place to get a job: hospital, doctor's office, etc.? Where would offer more security? Which would offer better benefits and pay?
I want to work with children. I'm planning on going to community college then to a 4 year college. I need a good paying career.
Can someone please explain these, I'm still in high school but I'm planning on going to college for psychology. Then yesterday I realized that there are more than one type of psychology. What are the different types and whats makes them different from each other?
I have already done research and I found contradicting studies over healthcare; some say that it is a booming field and has great job security and others will say that specific jobs are very difficult and require a Master's to get into.
My interest in this degree is to improve the healthcare community and make hospitals more efficient, but I also am interested in making a good salary (at least $60,000/year) after working for five years so I can support a family and have a home.
I just got accepted to a nursing school starting this Aug. I am very happy but scared at same time. This is 2 yrs program though. I will have no income during the time. I hear that Nursing school is very tough. But anyone out there working part-time and do schooling? Is it possible? Any good scholorships that I can apply?
I'm looking for feedback from those who have had many jobs, and through their experiences, have found just the right balance of pay and enough spare time to enjoy a social life.
I am 26 yrs old with a BS degree in psychology. I am now halfway through an associates program for my RN, am very stressed out and have doubts about this career path. I know many disillusioned RN's. I want a pleasant but fulfilling career in which I can make decent money. Any suggestions??
Without going on for an advanced degree and/or a 'supplemental' degree.
Are there different types in the Psyhcology category?
I mean, I found:
- Developmental Psychology
- Health Psychology
- Psychology and Law
- Social/Personality Psychology
Are there any others I should know about?
I'm starting my senior project about Psychology so I must know.
I appreciate all your answers, thank you.
I'm interested in psychology, and i want to know what careers there are in psychology and different types.
how much does the average psychologist make? how many years of schooling, and what would he do?
Countering with facts and statistics doesn’t seem to work. Instead, listening to Republicans' rants can be educational for a progressive, because the anti-government sentiment highlights the masterful job done by conservatives and the wealthy over the years, as they have basically convinced much of America to argue against themselves on matters of politics and the economy.
It would make more sense to take on the real villains.
1. Medical Providers
They’re taking a lot more of our money than Medicare does. According to the Council for Affordable Health Insurance, medical administrative costs as a percentage of claims are about three times higher for private insurance than for Medicare. The U.S. Institute of Medicine reports that the for-profit system wastes $750 billion a year on waste, fraud, and inefficiency. As a percent of GDP, we spend $1.2 trillion more than the OECD average.
That’s an amount equal to the entire deficit wasted on private medical care companies. One out of every six dollars we earn goes to doctors, hospitals, drug companies, and insurance companies. All good reasons to redirect our hatred.
2. Retirement Brokers
Various reports have concluded that administrative costs for 401(k) plans are much higher than those for Social Security — up to twenty times more.
It would be difficult to find, or even imagine, any short-term-profit-based private insurer that is fully funded for the next 25 years. Social Security is. It works for all retirees while private plans work for a limited number of investors.
Government is often blamed for local budget shortfalls, but cities and towns around the country have been repeatedly victimized by a “bid-rigging” process that diverts billions of dollars — a few thousand at a time — from numerous unsuspecting communities to the accounts of a few big banks.
Individual homeowners, especially minorities, have also been victimized by the banks. Because of the housing crash and the corresponding decrease in home values, black households lost over half of their median wealth, and Hispanic households almost two-thirds.
There are scandals and scams galore: the privately run Mortgage Electronic Registration System (MERS) headed up the illegal foreclosure business; the banking association LIBOR was guilty of interest rate manipulation; and plenty of financial institutions have engaged in the subtle art of imposing hidden fees. Credit cards are loaded with “gray charges” like surprise subscriptions and auto-renewals that cost the average consumer $356 a year.
Yet we’re forced to keep paying. Shockingly, it has been estimated that 40?f every dollar we spend on goods and services goes to banks as interest.
Public banks, on the other hand, focus on the needs of communities and small businesses rather than on investors. The most well-known example is the Bank of North Dakota (BND), which has successfully worked with local banks throughout the state, promoting business growth through loans that a larger bank might be reluctant to make, while managing to turn a profit every year for the past 40 years.
4. Higher Education Operators
Outside of the banking industry, there may not be a more egregious example of public abuse than the expropriation of higher education by profit-seekers who have subjected underemployed young people to years of student loan obligations. The collection of outstanding student debt is managed in good part by big banks like JP Morgan and Citigroup.
In most countries tuition remains free or nominal, but in America, as noted by Noam Chomsky, the belief that education strengthens a country is giving way to a philosophy of paying for your own educational benefits. Meanwhile, the “corporatization of universities” has led to a dramatic increase in administrators while relatively expensive programs like nursing, engineering and computer science are being cut.
But the easy loans keep accruing interest long after college ends. With a hint of foreboding, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Department of Education reported that the student loan debacle has been fueled by the same forces that led to the subprime mortgage collapse.
The “invisible hand” of the free market is unable, or unwilling, to satisfy the needs of society in all these areas. For that it is worthy of our contempt.
What type of degree is required to become an Activities Director or Events Planner in a retirement home setting? I am getting my BS in Business with a Certificate in Gerontology (study of aging). Do you think that degree will work for that type of job? What other jobs in this field would be available to me with that degree?
Acre Woods Retirement Community Case Study
Acre Woods is a private retirement community with 275 senior residents. Its mission is to improve the quality of life of its residents through physical and emotional care. Sarah Armstrong, Acre Woods’ resident physical therapist, manages the retirement community’s activity program. Recently, Acre Woods added a pool to its rehabilitation center to facilitate resident exercise and aquatic therapy. The residents’ monthly rent was raised to help finance the pool.
After the pool was constructed, Sarah immediately contacted the director of Acre Woods, Mark Adams, with concerns that the pool did not meet some important specifications that were included in the original design, including non-slip treads on the stairs and improved wheelchair access to the pool area. Mark advised Sarah that the residents would be happy to have a pool, even if it didn’t contain all the requested special features. When Sarah asked why the new ramp and stair treads were not provided when they were included in the budget, the director remarked that Sarah’s job was to provide physical therapy, not to worry about the budget.
Over the next month, four Acre Woods residents had minor falls using the pool stairs. While the accidents weren’t serious, other residents began to express fears about using the pool. Sarah contacted Mark again to relate resident complaints and to stress the need for pool accessibility and safety improvements. Mark informed Sarah that she was the only member of Acre Woods staff that was complaining or concerned about the pool; therefore, there was no issue. Mark stated that he had a report from another Acre Woods physical therapist, Gene Levy, reporting that residents enjoy the pool and that it has expanded opportunities for physical therapy. Sarah asked Mark to tour the facility in person to assess the situation, but Mark expressed that he was too busy to visit Acre Woods until the next quarter.
Two weeks later, Mark promoted Gene to health care administrator of Acre Woods. Gene took over Sarah’s activity program duties and re-assigned her to the assisted living unit. Concerned about Acre Woods’ ability to live up to its mission and suspicious about the missing funds from the pool project, Sarah contacted the local newspaper and “blew the whistle” on the director’s response to her complaints.
Europe has created the EU and in that continent you can live work and go to school in any nation.
but in the US you can't even go to community college in a neighboring state without paying out of state tuition. another thing that bugs me is that different schools have different credit ammounts for different courses. like in some places calculus would be a 4 credit course and in others its 3 credits. so if you try to transfer you can't transfer all of your courses.
meanwhile california and texas allow i****************s to attend community college for in state tuition. w*f?
compare our education system to places like denmark and the holland. is it me or is the US education system retarded?
Well,i get offer from private university and i have to decide which want program i want to choose.the first program is bachelor in education,and second program is bachelor in hospitality management.so what do you think guys??could you tell me?
I am 22 and I went to a vocational school after I graduated which led to my current career.
I decided to go back to school with encouragement from my husband, and I have a year in now at community college and have been working toward my Associates in Arts degree since I'm undecided. Now I'm getting close to finishing my general education requirements and I'm trying to figure out what to pursue.
Recently I've been thinking about getting my bachelors in secondary education to teach history. English is my forte, but I don't think I would enjoy teaching it. I would continue on and get my masters and try to teach college level then since I would have experience then and my masters. I would then continue on to get my PhD.
Is it worth it to be a teacher though? I would love it and it seems that it has been my calling since I was a kid making my little sister play school with me, but I need to know that it isn't so bad to live off the income of a teacher. I know I'm not going to make as much as a doctor, but I at least have to be upgrading from my current income since I don't have a bad job now.
Right now I make around $36k pre-tax...closer to $29k post-tax. Oh, and I work from home and when I clock out I'm done working until I clock back in; I don't have to do work outside of my normal hours. I know that teaching requires more work; it is also more rewarding.
So, in addition to pay, how good are the benefits you get as a secondary or college level teacher? I am in Kansas City right now, so that is where I would teach, secondary level at least. Do the retirement benefits make it worth it? I just need any advice I can get; I'm trying to make an informed decision, but it's very hard in the US to find accurate information since discussing salary and other job details is taboo or something.
