The Top 5 Part-Time Healthcare Jobs For Students

Maybe you’re a student and you’re looking for a little something to get you relevant experience and also to bring in a little cash. We’ve all been there.

Healthcare roles and careers often have really high barriers to entry. That’s why gathering this relevant experience for your resume can prove to be useful. You see, why not test the waters of the healthcare job landscape every so often. Maybe you’ll find yourself something that you like even more than what you’re studying.

Now, if you can get yourself the option to job shadow, you take it. That experience can prove to be invaluable under the right circumstances. It’ll give you a glimpse into your future that will be absolutely realistic and you’ll understand the jobs expectations. It’s about as close to hands-on experience as there is.

So as a result, there are many part time healthcare jobs for college students:

Licensed Practical and Licensed Vocational Nurses

This career path isn’t for the faint of heart. Bringing in a solid $48,820 per year according to BLS, this career path is expected to grow by 9% in the coming years. An LPN or LVN may work in a variety of different settings from hospitals to nursing homes to private homes, the options are pretty flexible and limitless. As a whole, you will be providing basic nursing care if you are in this role. The type of basic nursing care is dependent on the organization who employs you and the needs of the patients.

Home Health Aides

With over 27,000 of them in the state of Michigan, Home Health Aides are a necessary inclusion to this list.

These are typically services performed for those individuals who are confined to their homes or are living in residential care facilities. In some instances, as a home health aide, you may also be providing daily care services to people with disabilities who work outside of the home.

Health and Medical Writer

How would you rate your writing skills 1-10? Do you think you could sit down and crank out a bunch of health and medical related articles based on SEO (search engine optimization) and keyword research, just like this one? Just kidding, your job will be much more in-depth, but it also pays quite well, but more on that later.

Health and medical writers tend to write training materials, manuals, and educational papers on top of articles just like this one. Meaning your research will need to be on point and backed by factual sources. To become a health and medical writer, there isn’t a traditional explicit career path, but if you become specialized in a specific field such as pharmaceuticals accompanied by an advanced degree in that field, you’ll be on the right path.

The average annual salary for a health and medical writer according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics is a staggering $71,354 annually. This is significantly more than the average American family and will ensure with good budgeting that you and your family can live a fulfilling life.

Pharmacy Technicians

They often find, dispense, pack, and label medication for patients coming in as well as work with insurance providers to ensure patients are being treated fairly. The work environment for a pharmacy technician can vary, but it typically will be within a retail store, hospital, or nursing home. Be prepared to spend long hours standing on your feet in this role and working weekends or holidays. Pharmacy technicians bring in around $35,000 annually.

Health Coach

Health coaches play a foundational role in providing motivation, education, and inspiration to clients that are looking to improve their physical health. As a health coach, you’re responsible for outlining practical plans for them to stick to, Health coaches encompass specialities and areas of all kinds, whether it’s wellness or fitness. If you pursue this role, make sure you choose a specialty that fits your passion. Making this a great job for nurses who don’t want to be nurses anymore or non bedside nursing jobs for new grads.

Average Salary

The Health Coach Institute has the average salary for people in this role bringing in a range from $50,0000 to $70,000 annually. 10% of these people also happen to pull in over $100,000 annually.
