4. Certified Nurse Aide (C.N.A) Certificate
Despite the challenges Obamacare is facing at a national level, the healthcare industry is booming. You can take a preparation course (usually around 100 hours) that includes both classroom hours and hands-on training in First Aid and patient care. Land a job in a hospital or as a live-in caregiver, and make up to $25 an hour. Furthermore, becoming a C.N.A. is a great stepping-stone if you’re considering an even lucrative career as a certified registered nurse (CRN).
