Great Healthcare Jobs Accessible Without Extensive Schooling

As various sources detailed on demonstrate, there's still major value in a college education (or beyond) in the job market. Even before the employment rebound following the economic recession, careers in healthcare remained stable.


Of course, certain assumptions come with jobs in the healthcare industry: They require years upon years of schooling, sometimes more than a decade. By the time you finish your coursework and embark on a lucrative job, you are hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt to student loans.

While certain careers in healthcare certainly require doctorates, and others bachelor's degrees at minimum, a few need just two years of associate's degree work to get started.

These are not low-paid, low-skill fields, either. U.S. News and World Report spotlights a few of the top healthcare jobs that require an associate's degree, and these are many jobs ranked highly in the Jobs Rated report.

Diagnostic Medical Sonographer, for example, ranked No. 5 overall for 2016, its first year tracked for the Jobs Rated report. The field's rapid growth rates and high pay, with an annual median above $60,000, is a great option for those seeking a change or just starting down their career path.

Different employers set different requirements, so be sure to do your due diligence. However, one of these jobs might be for you, without requiring you to spend the next 12 years in school.
