There is more demand now for healthcare professionals then ever. With the baby boomers nearing retirement age they are especially in need of nurses and nursing assistants who can help care for them.
The great news is that many of these careers only require a 2 year technician degree or sometimes even a certificate which you can obtain in as little as 9 months. Depending on where you live there should be a technical school near you which is offering training classes.
Some of the most lucrative careers right now is in nursing. Nurses can often make often make over $20/hour as a starting salary and can make over $60,000 after a few years of experience.

Ammsa.org has been blessed to have some of the most generous people volunteering their time and money towards are goals. Recently we have received a huge donation from a refrigerator site. The refrigerator reviewer has been our longtime supporter and we would like to say a special thank you to the wonderful folks there! Ammsa.com was in need of refrigerators for their main campus and a few were donated in 2012. Also we will be giving out school grants to needy students to help them with their higher education costs.
