The health care industry is vast—595,800 establishments make up this evergrowing industry, each varying in size, staffing and organizational structure. Careers within the industry are also diverse. Many health care providers come in direct contact with patients routinely, while others work in specialized positions behind the scenes. As advances to procedures and changes to the system are implemented, continuing education is necessary. At PHSC, we provide you with the career guidance, preparation, training, and the support that you need to find yourself in a career in health care.
Health care providers' educational backgrounds range from certificates to doctoral degrees; however, many positions require fewer than four years of education or training. Also, individuals in the health industry often require continuing education and training to keep current in skills and technology.
Note: Any student entering into a PHSC health program must complete the PHSC NCH0050, BLS Healthcare CPR course available through the PHSC American Heart Association (AHA) Training Center.
