As a job seeker clearly the health care industry is one of the few growth areas in our “jobless recovery”. This can be very positive for those who want to move towards a career as a nurse or medical assistant in either a private practice or hospital.
These jobs tend to pay higher than average wages. But they also require some invest in specialized medical scrubs. A lab coat or nursing uniform is not an inexpensive investment so it is necessary to research where style (yes it can be cool), quality and economic necessity converge. Usually this is not in a local store. The good news there are competitively priced scrub uniforms that you can buy online at stores like BlueSkyScrubs.com at http://www.blueskyscrubs.com/categories/Scrubs/.
