Great Healthcare Careers That Don’t Require Medical School

Did you know that you can have an exciting career in the healthcare field without going to medical school? You may be surprised to learn many great healthcare career options don’t require medical degrees. Anodyne currently has openings for numerous healthcare jobs across the country, including the following:


Home Health Aide

If you’re searching for a healthcare job that allows you to make a personal impact on patients’ lives, you may enjoy a home health aide position. Home health aides provide in-home care to patients, performing various duties such as light housekeeping and meal preparation. Home health aides also assist patients with personal hygiene needs, including feeding, dressing, and bathing. Most importantly, home health aides improve patients’ lives by spending quality time with them, and providing safety and comfort. To qualify as a home health aide, typically, all that’s required is a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) certificate or a Home Health Aide (HHA) certificate.


Registered Nurse (RN) Supervisor

For RNs looking to make career transitions, registered nurse supervisor positions are wonderful job opportunities. Nurse supervisors in the home care field provide, manage, and support home care staff and conduct day-to-day supervision of home care cases following company policies and state/federal regulations. Nurse supervisors must contribute to high-quality patient care, updating care plans, training staff, and performing supervisory visits as necessary. To qualify as a nurse supervisor, you must be a registered nurse with at least a couple of years of nursing experience.


Dental Assistant

A dental assistant job is a great option for individuals interested in working in the growing dental field but who lack a medical degree. In this role, you’ll assist dentists with various dental procedures and prepare patients for surgery; perform administrative tasks; clean up after procedures; and sterilize equipment. To qualify, typically, you need to complete a certified dental assistant program at a vocational school or community college.


These are just a few of the fulfilling career options that don’t require medical school. Most importantly, all these jobs offer competitive salaries and growth potential!
