Achieving New Year's Career Resolutions for Healthcare Professionals


SPONSORED CONTENT -- (StatePoint) The New Year is the perfect time to take stock of your career, and see how it can serve you better. Due to the healthcare worker shortage and the events of the past few years, those in this field may be feeling particularly overworked and under-appreciated in their current positions. In this climate, industry experts say that some of the most common career resolutions that people make can be achieved by pivoting to home healthcare.

“Whether you are resolving to gain more autonomy over your schedule, or resolving to find meaning in your day-to-day work, a home healthcare career can help you hit the career reset button and get closer to your goals,” says Paul Mastrapa, president and chief executive officer of Interim HealthCare, Inc.

For a fresh start in 2024, consider how the following career goals can align with the home healthcare track:

• I want more me time: Perhaps you have your own family members to take care of, or maybe you just need more control over your schedule. If balancing work with what’s important in your life -- family, friends and your own health -- is one of your 2024 career goals, know that with a career in home healthcare, you can often set your own schedule and accept assignments that meet your needs, whether you’re a full-time employee or picking up shifts here and there.

• I want my work to be meaningful: Nurses and other healthcare professionals who work in doctor’s offices, hospitals and clinics may not always get an opportunity to work closely with patients and families for long enough periods to see the positive impacts they’ve made. Providing long-term, individualized care for patients in a home setting gives professionals an opportunity to get to know their patients, witness their successes and help them when things become challenging.

“It’s no surprise that the healthcare industry attracts mission-driven people who are looking for meaningful work. When it comes to making a difference in someone’s life, and bringing who you are into what you do, it’s hard to beat the impact you can have by working in home healthcare,” says Mastrapa.

• I want to expand my skills: Want to make 2024 the year you advance your career? Certain home healthcare providers offer professional development opportunities and room for growth. Interim HealthCare for example, provides their employees with tuition discounts with partner institutions for in-person and online educational programs, along with skills training, hands-on experience, and career development.

• I want job security: As baby boomers age, and as more patients and medical professionals come to view home healthcare as a beneficial choice for many patients, positioning yourself in this field now could be a solid, long-term career move. In fact, home health and personal care aide job openings are projected to grow 33% from 2020 to 2030, with experts predicting an estimated 8.2 million job openings in home-based care by 2028. That’s why many home healthcare providers are actively recruiting right now.
