How this career is perceived by other professionals and lay people

Most of you are taking this course with the intention of pursuing a career in healthcare. I always encourage my students to research the career they plan on striving for to ensure that they “know what they’re getting into”. I’ve seen plenty of students spend a lot of time and money to get an education only to discover that, for whatever reasons, they are not interested in the “9 to 5” routine of their chosen career once they graduate. Therefore, your research paper is going to be devoted to any health related career of your choice. This paper will enable to you to do the research behind the career you are considering and gain a better understanding about the job demands, rewards, etc. In addition to this research, I highly recommend that you take some “free time” to shadow a professional in the field of your choice or volunteer in the environment for which you desire to work so you can see the “real-world” pros and cons of the job. Very often, the academic prep is very different than the actual work setting/demands. Your education is the most valuable investment you can make; ensure that you make the right choice and know what you want for the long term. 


You will write your paper based on literature researched about your chosen field. Research should come from scientific information on the internet and research articles at the APUS Library and you must utilize between 5 and 10 reliable and relevant academic references. Your paper should include, but not be limited to the following topics:

Your paper should be written in the THIRD PERSON taking the individual out of the writing and avoiding pronouns such as I, we, my, our (first person) and you, yours, your, us, we (second person). You should deal with facts and not opinions, thus providing citations within your paper and on your reference page. Focus on the subject itself and not on your feelings about the subject. The use of third person retains a formal tone in your writing. The use of first and second person can make a document seem more casual.
