Top Five Blogs of 2016
As 2016 winds down, it seems an appropriate time to look back upon the year that was. Here at Concorde blog central, that means taking a look back at what were the most clicked-on and viewed blogs of the year. They focused on several of Concordeâs programs and health care degrees. They ranged from posts focusing on one or two health care degrees and what distinguishes them, to how-to tools in how to navigate those programs successfully.
There were serious blogs focusing on our most popular and successful health care degrees. And, there were those that were more fun and frivolous, such as âHealth Care Careers That Deal in Gore,â our Halloween blog. They covered a wide variety of topics and material.
Hopefully, they entertained and informed readers about the health care degrees Concorde has to offer. Whether they did or didnât, we promise to strive to make create even more informative and more entertaining blog content in 2017.
Happy New Year!!
Here were the top 5 blogs of 2016. The first 1-2 paragraphs of each blog will be included under the title, followed by a link to the entire post.
No. 1: Difference Between Occupational and Physical Therapy Assistant
If youâre interested in obtaining a health care degree that will allow you to work closely with patients, consider becoming anÂ occupational therapist assistant
Â (OTA) orÂ physical therapist assistant
These family-friendly occupations often provide considerable flexibility in terms of workplace and hours. The educational period is relatively short compared to many health care careers. AtÂ Concorde Career College
, we open the door to both of these career possibilities for you.
No. 2: Explore Concorde's Lamplighter Program
At Concorde Career College
, our teaching philosophy and classroom model are much different than traditional four-year colleges.Â From day one, youâre placed in a cohort that will quickly become your family as you move through your chosen program together.
Whether asked to perform a medical procedure on a classmate or getting out in the community, we realize that learning isnât confined to textbooks and lecture halls.
A unique opportunity to grow as a leader while you study is to join the Concorde Lamplighter Student Ambassador program. Each one of our 16 campuses has a Lamplighter group.
No. 3: Using LinkedIn as a Nursing Student To Get Ahead
At Concorde, as with all our graduates, we want to make sure that our students pursuing aÂ nursing degree program
Â are successful in their job hunts. Building a professional presence on LinkedIn offers a great way to attract the attention of prospective employers.
After you become a registered nurse, you want to ensure that you have multiple opportunities, and LinkedIn can help.
No. 4: What's the Benefit of LPN to RN Bridge Programs?
When you went to school for your licensed practical nurse (LPN) degree, you might have found the short program appealing because it enabled you to get to work right away.
However, many nurses quickly discover that becoming a registered nurse (RN) brings more career opportunities and the potential to earn more.
ExploringÂ LPN to RN bridge programs
Â is a great way to advance your career.
No. 5: Diplomas vs. Associate's Degrees
When it comes to browsing health care programs atÂ Concorde Career College
Â to find the oneÂ thatâs right for you, one of the factors that might work into your decision is whether, at the end of the program, you receive a diploma or an associateâs degree.
