According to census, more and more people will require a number of medical related services. The population is aging and declining in health and while that is not good news, the good news is that those in the health care will enjoy more job opportunities. A large portion of the baby boomers are now retiring and among other things, they’ll require healthcare services.
Certified Nurse Aides will benefit from the new health related companies moving into Oklahoma. Companies in private health care, memory care, rehabilitation and long-term care are increasing in numbers and need qualified and certified professionals to fill positions.
The long-term care and health home care positions provide some of the most stable job opportunities because the demand of services is either constantly high or is increasing. You, as a certified nurse aide will not have to worry about the security of your job because of this. Unlike many other industries like oil and gas that fluctuate over time, healthcare is part of our basic need and so the demand will continue being high.
The flexibility of the nursing profession in general is another great benefit that one should consider. While most jobs are limited to the 9am – 5pm time period, as a CNA you have different shifts to choose from and different times as well. Like to only work on weekend? You can! Want to work nights only? You can! This flexibility in time allows you to work around other life commitments such as taking care of kids, your family time and social time, and even going to school.
Lastly, certified nurse aides have the option of advancing to other career opportunities. While being a CNA is great, it doesn’t stop there. you can be a Certified Medical Aide (CMA), go on to be a Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) or even jump to become a Registered Nurse (RN). In between there are other certifications that you can pursue and as you do, you continue opening up your opportunities and advancements.
