5 of the Most Stable Healthcare Careers for 2013

Are you looking for a career that you can stick with, and that will stick around for you? (Who isn’t, right?) When it comes to choosing a career that is likely to stick around for the long haul and provide future opportunities for growth, you absolutely cannot go wrong by getting your foot in the door in the medical field.

Generally speaking, it is safe to say that most medical field careers will be around as long as there are people in need of healthcare; however, there are a few standouts that seem to be leading the pack in regards to job security today.

Here are five of the most stable healthcare career fields for 2013:

Registered nurse. Nurses are needed in every healthcare environment there is, and the career of nursing is virtually recession proof. The great thing about nursing is that you also have the opportunity to make a very comfortable living for a relatively small investment in education.

Physical therapy. If you need any proof that physical therapy is a hot field to be in right now, simply search the web for open positions in your area. Physical therapists are in high demand, and in a variety of settings, from hospitals to schools to clinics to private homes. What’s more is that physical therapists have the opportunity to bring in some serious salaries, and may even branch off into a number of different specialties to further secure their demand.

Healthcare IT. This branch of the healthcare industry is taking off, and quickly, and has been steadily diversifying since the use of technology in the medical field became so popular. Basically, if you have experience and knowledge in IT, then you can translate that knowledge into a very lucrative career in the healthcare field as long as you can find a need and fill it.

Dental hygiene. Not only are dental hygienists in great demand right now, but that demand is expected to increase gradually over the next several years. To get into this stable healthcare field, you only need to obtain a two year degree and your licensing (or certification) in order to make a great salary.

X Ray Technician. You can get your foot in the door as a diagnostic medical imaging specialist (X ray technician) with only a two year degree and make a comfortable salary, or you may even pursue an advanced education to increase your expertise, demand, and pay. This healthcare field is not only stable, but also predicted to grow in the future.

As you can see, you have a number of options when looking into stable healthcare careers. Take inventory of your education and interests to find your perfect fit.
