  •  Key is going to be education for the job market. (7+ / 0-)

    Local community college will be key to getting a quick education that is focused on a job requirement of economy.

    For example, you could get a CNA certification in about 12 weeks.  Pay is about $15 an hour and it puts you in the health care industry where there are other opportunities if you get more education which the community college can provide.

    Go over to you local community college and talk to an adviser.

      In my area, CNA course at community college costs about $750 (although I live in rural VA, it may be more expensive in an urban area). You can also look at other health professions (nursing (LPN, RN), medical technician, respiratory technician, physical therapy assistant) but only if that interests you. There are many fields you will have exposure to should you take the CC route, so keep your options open and stay focused on your goals.

      try the min. And twice as many patients as is possible to take adequate care of.
      But hey, it'd be a job.
