Back to School Doesn’t Have to Be Just for the Kids

What’s at the forefront of most parents’ minds this time of year? That’s right, Back to School. Now that the kids are once again in school, perhaps you have more free time in your schedule. Taking classes as a step to furthering, or perhaps starting, your career in the healthcare field is a great option for you, as well as a positive step in promoting your child’s success. Research has shown that parents who demonstrate that they value education will have children who perform better in school. According to the National Institutes of Health in an article entitled, Long Term Effects of Parent’s Education on Children’s Educational and Occupational Success, the level of education that parents attain is an important predictor of their child’s academic performance and behavior. “A child exposed to parents who model achievement-oriented behavior…promote successful outcomes across development…” What better way to model that behavior than to continue your education?

Taking classes which will earn you a certificate with the opportunity to go on and attain national certification is what you will have available at Larock Healthcare Academy. According to the United States Census Bureau, professional certifications, licenses, and / or educational certificates have “labor market value”, which means more opportunities and higher earnings. Healthcare is an excellent career path, largely due to its projected growth. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of healthcare occupations is projected to grow 26% in the next several years, adding about 4.1 million new jobs, more than any other group of occupations. Hospitals alone are projected to add about 826,000 jobs from 2012 – 2022.

Here at Larock Healthcare Academy, we have a variety of short-term, certification programs that are affordable and designed to fit a variety of schedules. With day, evening, and weekend options, you should be able to find something that works for you. Our admissions staff is here to help you decide what program is a good fit, as well as answer any questions you may have.
