Question by B.A.C.C.: What jobs are available with having an associate’s degree in health care administration?
I am attending college and I am majoring in health care administration. I am going for my associate’s degree for now and I am hoping to find a job after I graduate. Any suggestions?

Someone with an associate’s in health care administration may possibly get a job as a medical (or other type of office) secretary or perhaps an administrative assistant. Please be aware, however, that some jobs for “administrative assistant” require a bachelor’s/four-year degree in “something”. An office manager of a small medical office *may* be a possibility with an associate’s, but those jobs may require a bachelor’s degree, too.
In order to possibly get a job as a health care administrator of a hospital or nursing home, one would need at least a master’s degree.
For more general career info: http://www.bls.gov/ooh and can search “secretaries and administrative assistants”, “administrative services managers”, “medical and health services managers” or such.
With regard to schooling, please do *avoid* those private For-profit schools such as devry, ITT tech, strayer, university of phoenix, capella and others. Their course credits usually do NOT transfer to other schools, even if the for-profit school is regionally accredited as opposed to only nationally accredited.
