5 Hot Attainable Medical Degrees

Hottest Medical Careers

If you’re interested in a career in health care, you’re in luck. The vast majority of top paying jobs in the country fall under the heading of the medical field. Increasing demand for both preventative medicine and care for an aging Baby Boomer population means that jobs are readily available in countless fields for those who are willing to put a little bit more into their education.

Even better: not every medical job requires four years of med school and further years of internships and residencies. These medical degrees are super attainable and can all lead to satisfying, high-paying jobs.

Nursing

With only a bachelor’s degree required to become a Registered Nurse (RN) and a shortage of nurses in the United States causing an increase in available salaries, this is an incredibly attractive degree for anyone who wants to work in medicine without going to med school.

Additionally, there’s also plenty of opportunity for growth within nursing. If you do decide to seek further education, a master’s degree can lead you to specialties that offer a higher pay grade.
