I was a combat medic in the army for 6 years, and I've worked in assisted living. They're wildly different experiences and required different things of me. Depending on how you want to practice medicine and in what capacity, there are different things that will affect you in different ways. As a combat medic, we see terrible things and they can change a person. For a role such as that, coping can be difficult because they're your comrades. The attachment is built right in. In the medical field, on the civilian side, they usually tell you not to get attached because it can sometimes wreck you if you ever see life or death situations. In assisted living, it confronts your fear of dying in other ways. For me, the family members were the hardest part of that job and I'll never forget being a shoulder to cry on. My point is, you can study until you get perfect scores and you can do your research, but until you're there, you will always have to face something you won't find in books. The emotional tole breaks people all the time. It's not always negative. Sometimes you'll hear a baby's first breath or watch someone learn to walk again. You'll see awful lows in this life, but you'll also see tremendous highs. That's something you need to be prepared for. You'll do so much good in this life.

First, Love taking care of people. People from all walks of life will come to you for support no matter what area of Healthcare you're in. Determine a area of expertise you want to focus on such as; Administration, Clinical, Diagnostic or Tech and obtain as much education about that field. Obtain your certification and remain compliant with CEU's (Continuing Education Units) this will help you to remain current in your chosen field. Also research your ideal place/company/hospital to work for and inquire if they offer internship programs. This could help you get your foot in the door and possibly Tuition Assistance if its a great fit.

Hope this helps and Good Luck!

Motivation and dedication is probably the most important role. The motivation has to come from within, nobody can want it more for you than yourself. Another big role is your grades. Take the right courses and get good grades on them. Don’t be afraid to ask questions because they will help you score better.
