A health care aide student at Herzing College practices patient care procedures
For many people, finding a quick college training program that leads directly to paid work is a top priority. And there are several good reasons students are drawn to condensed certificates and diplomas—like cheaper tuition, shorter disruption to work and family life, and a much faster start to a career.
But when we think of health care careers, it's not fast training programs that come to mind. Doctors, nurses, and other clinicians spend years earning an education. Most people assume that meaningful work in health care takes a huge investment of time and money on training.
