The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to make a change in your career path
The end of another year is a time for reflection and contemplation. Are you happy with your current career path? Is your personal life as fulfilling as you would like it to be? What changes do you need to make in 2017 to better attain your goals?
The Salter School of Nursing and Allied Health is committed to helping adults who want to begin a career in the field of nursing. Do you think a career change is in your future? If so, take a moment to ask these self-assessment questions to see if the Salter School of Nursing might be a good fit for you.
1. Do you feel like your current job doesn’t challenge you enough?
2. Are you looking for a new job, but concerned that you do not have marketable job skills?
3. Are you looking for a short-term career training program (and not a two-year or four-year college)?
4. Would you like a career field where you help others?
5. Would you like to work in the field of health care?
If you answer “yes” to all these questions, then you might want to consider pursuing a career in the field of nursing or allied health. The Salter School of Nursing, located in Manchester, NH, provides three career-focused training programs:
Nursing assistant: You can get trained as a nursing assistant in less than one year. Nursing assistants typically work in nursing homes where they provide for the basic needs of the residents and patients.
Patient Care Technician: If you want more training, you can choose to become a Patient Care Technician (PCT). PCTs have more responsibilities than nursing assistants and are trained to draw blood and administer EKGs. Training can still be completed in less than one year.
Practical nurse. Practical nurse training can be completed in about one year. As a practical nurse, you would have more responsibility than nursing assistants and PCTs, such as helping doctors and nurses with procedures, monitoring patients’ medications, and maintaining patient records.
At the Salter School of Nursing, no prior nursing experience is required. You simply need to have a high school diploma or equivalent—we will provide the rest of the training you need! With our programs, you will have the job skills you need to pursue your state licensure and then to apply for entry level jobs in your new field.
The Salter School of Nursing wants to wish everyone a Happy 2017! We hope you choose Salter Nursing for your career training in the New Year.
