Invest In Yourself
Don’t be put off by the cost of education. In many cases, scholarships or financial aid are available, and some employers will help pay for certain kinds of healthcare training.

Equally important, the investment you make in your education will almost always pay for itself over time. Look closely at the wage information shown on the many career ladder examples found on the job profiles located throughout this site — or visit "Does Training Pay?" at CareerLinks.org for more information.
