Ngoc-Ha if your goal is to get into a healthcare administration or management position, then you should first try to gain a Certified Nursing Assistants, or CNAs diploma. There are stepping stones you can take which will help you to achieve your goals and build on your experience. Rather than trying to make the leap from the beginner level to a level of relatively significant experience, you should take the time to work your way up through the ranks first. The benefit to working your way up is that you will significantly improve your educational and experience foundation. You will also have a lot more to put on your resume and that can help you as you reach for your true healthcare career goals. There is a long list of free online healthcare courses and seminars available that will help you to gain a detailed understanding of what the healthcare industry is and what will be expected of you. The major universities offer many online free courses as well as the websites that specialize in online training.

In addition to what Kathleen is mentioning above, there are also volunteers at local VA hospitals and medical facilities. Similar to other hospitals volunteers may do things like transport patients via wheel chair or other administrative type tasks. It is a wonderful way to expand your horizons by volunteering but to also become familiar with various healthcare settings, and the ones in which you may be interested.
Best of luck,
