After more than 50 years of career counselling and training, we have a pretty good idea of what attracts people to health care careers.
The health care students we work with are usually quite practical, thoughtful, and generous. They're focused on helping other people. They want to make a positive difference in their community and do a job that really matters.
Almost always, health care students are interested in giving back. They're looking for a career that is both personally rewarding and highly valued.
But it's not all about giving. Like anyone else, health care students want a secure job after training.
