Hello All,

Sorry to be posting so much, life has been super busy and things are just stacking up and I finally have some time today to unpack some and hopefully get some feedback to help me make choices in an informed manner.

So, a while back I posted about going back to school for psychology. After reading the responses and doing more research, I have decided that is not the route I need.

So I am looking into Business with a focus on Medical or Bachelor of Science in Human Services with a concentration in Management.

I feel the Medical field is Huge so there is much opportunity for employment, etc. But I enjoy "helping" people and the Human Services sounds more "satisfying".

I have looked at state openings and there are several the Human Services degree would qualify for, so there does seem to be a need in my area, but I am just not sure.

What are your educated views on these areas?

You mean like social work?
I'm not sure what falls under "human services" sounds like a very wide topic.

If you are looking into Social work it is a Masters level program to get liscenced, and then they typically make less money than any other liscenced professional within the medical field.

Not Social Work as in the traditional sense, but more a cog in the wheel/support personnel. The positions I saw for the state just required a BS, and some any BS would do, if you had some prior "experience" in a related field.

Pay was quite fair imo for these positions compared.

I am not shooting for the moon, just hoping for some area that is somewhat stable/secure and something I will not "hate" spending 40+ hours of my life at each week. Perhaps that is shooting for the moon ???
