The medical field isn’t going anywhere.  The fact that the industry is only going to grow is only making the professions more attractive.  If you’ve been looking into programs you’ve probably noticed that getting into a nursing program usually involves a lengthy process – it’s more common to hear that there is a wait list and a lottery system for getting selected which could take years!

In this economy a lot people can’t afford to wait years.  More and more people are realizing that programs for much needed medical positions such as Practical Nurses and Medical Assistants don’t take as long and will get you the experience and into the field alot sooner.  Then you can afford to wait for an RN program because you’re already working in the field.

What’s your take on the situation? Are  you seeing the same thing happen to Practical Nursing programs? Lengthy wait lists?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics a Court Reporter is:[Someone who] creates verbatim transcripts of speeches, conversations, legal proceedings, meetings, and other events. Written accounts of spoken words are sometimes necessary for correspondence, records, or legal proof, and court reporters provide those accounts. Court reporters play a critical role not only in judicial proceedings, but also at every meeting where the spoken word must be preserved as a written transcript. They are responsible for ensuring a complete, accurate, and secure legal record.

Some fear with new technology that this position could become obsolete. This is not true, there will always be a need for a person to create the end transcribed product.  Technology itself can only do so much.

For-profit/private career colleges have been in the spotlight, right now the Department of Education is proposing a “gainful employment” rule to ensure students do not pay too much in tuition compared with their employment opportunities.  Excessive debt can be an issue regardless of institution type.  This is not a one-size fits all solution.  There are better ways to address issues of excessive debt, such as encouraging responsible borrowing and educating people on how much to borrow and payback options.   The studies that the Department of Education conducted and is basing this off of are not reflective of ALL for-profit colleges.

For-profit colleges provide access to higher education and training programs to hundreds of thousands of non-traditional students: those who are less affluent and minorities as well as working adults.  For-profit institutions are important contributors to our nation’s workforce.
