Are you considering a career in the healthcare industry? Health and wellness have certainly been on our minds a lot lately. And joining the world of professional healthcare is a great way to embark on a new journey with benefits for yourself and others. Here are just four of the many reasons why a career in healthcare might suit you well:

It’s personally fulfilling.

Many people are dissatisfied with their jobs because they don’t find a rewarding meaning in their work. With a career in healthcare, it’s unlikely you’ll have to worry about that. Working in healthcare is all about making a difference in the lives of others — a life and death difference, in some cases. And finding meaning in your work can boost your motivation, physical health, and mental well-being.

It offers flexibility.

The healthcare industry offers opportunities to work day shift, night shift, second shift, a modified schedule, and even remotely in some cases. No matter what kind of schedule works for you, you’ll probably be able to find it in healthcare. And there is travel nursing, which allows you to explore new opportunities on a regular basis and see every corner of the country if you desire.

The job outlook is good.

The job outlook for those in the healthcare profession is very good, especially as the COVID-19 pandemic causes more and more people to seek care. Plus, baby boomers are getting to the age where they’ll need increased healthcare visits, creating more job growth. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that the medical industry will add more jobs than any other industry between 2014 and 2024. That means you’ll have great job security and the ability to take your career wherever you want it to go.

You’ll earn above-average pay.

You aren’t doing it for the money, but receiving a great paycheck doesn’t hurt, either. The median annual wage for healthcare occupations in 2016 was just over $63,000 a year, and many people who work in specialized areas of healthcare make far more. Helping others and taking home a good paycheck—that’s more than enough of a reason to consider a career in the world of health and medicine.
