Patient Care Aids Make a Difference

Patient care is a very integral part of the medical industry. Nursing assistants are trained to perform basic patient care under the supervision of registered nurses and/or licensed practical nurses. Good patient care makes patients feel a little less stressed about their current medical situations. Earning your patient care degree prepares you for a career as a nursing aide.

Graduates leaving college with training in health-related fields may have an easier time finding jobs than other graduates, state and local officials say.

"Even in this economy, California needs more - and more diverse - health workers," Brelvi said. "As our state grows and as the population gets larger and more diverse, this need will become even more urgent."

Nationally, experts have talked about 2009 being a tough year for new college graduates. The National Association of Colleges and Employers, for example, said nearly two-thirds of seniors they surveyed are concerned about finding jobs.

Less than 20% of those who applied for jobs have been hired, the association reported last week.

With an online patient care degree, you will be prepared to work in a hospital setting. Your responsibilities include measuring vital signs and assisting patients with daily living activities, such as feeding, bathing, moving, or grooming patients, changing linens, and taking care of equipment.
