I am going for the same degree right now, and I needed this particular one (Assoc. in Healthcare Admin) to work for the Cancer Registry. It's a very rewarding career, and most places allow you to work from home. If you're interested in this, then contact your local hospital. Good luck!

An associate degree is helpful, but not always required for an office job. If you have all of the skills necessary, and can prove yourself, you may still be able to get the job.

Having an associate nursing degree will allow you to work at entry-level jobs in the field. According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, nursing graduates are likely to have a promising job prospect in the coming years. To obtain an associate nursing degree, you will first need to conduct research on what types of programs you want. For example, if you are unable to travel to campus every day or you are currently having a full-time job, you may want to consider getting an associate nursing degree through an online program. However, if you lack self-motivation or do not have stable Internet access, a campus program will be more suitable as you will be able to interact with your instructors and classmates directly. Look up associate nursing programs online and at your local community colleges. However, before you enroll make sure that the program is accredited by by the State Boards of Nursing. Otherwise, your qualification will not be recognized by most healthcare practitioners and medical facilities. These courses usually take only two years if you participate as a full-time student. In a two-year associate nursing program, you will learn a lot of necessary technical skills but only a small amount of theories. Courses in a associate nursing program may include anatomy, physiology, chemistry, biology, family health, pharmacology, mental health, and pediatric and geriatric health. This will prepare you for a hour-year Bachelor’s degree program if you wish to advance in the healthcare job market. After graduating with an Associate nursing degree, you will be eligible to become a registered nurse or a licensed practical nurse by passing the NCLEX exam administered by the State Boards of Nusing. Thus, even though the opportunity for advancement may not be so favorable for nurses with an associate degree, they can start earning money earlier than people who spend two extra years studying for a Bachelor’s degree. The tuition fee for getting an associate nursing degree varies according to different colleges. However, most programs cost no more than a couple thousand dollars.

If you’re interested in pursuing a public health degree, you may have just been interested in the general idea. In fact, there are several different types of health degrees that you can obtain through an education, and this definitely leaves your options open to the fullest. One of your options that you have when pursuing a health degree is an environmental health degree. People that major in an environmental health degree focus on how humans are affected by the environment. This includes going in depth and (for example) studying the detrimental effects of radiation, pollution, contamination and more on humans. People pursuing a health degree are also open to focus on Health Services Administration. This degree is specifically designed for students that wish to take a role in management in a place such as a hospital, doctor’s office, government health programs, etc. People majoring in this learn the basics as well as business and management skills in a medical setting. While pursuing a health degree, people can choose to focus on maternal and child health. Students majoring in this area learn and obtain the different skills to care for and treat mothers and children. If you are thinking about pursuing this route with your health degree, you’ll be eligible to advise mothers about their pregnancies, health of infants and labor. Additionally, with your health degree, you have the option to pursue an Occupational Health & Industrial Hygiene degree. People with this kind of degree are able to put into place safety, environmental and health measures in the work place. Students will learn the skills to address sanitation, the public health policies, and more. In the case that you like teaching and helping people, you may want to consider taking your health degree in the direction of Public Health Education and Promotion. Students pursuing this route with their coursework can expect to obtain skills to relay healthcare on medicine information to the general public. They are often needed to help inform the public during the time of an epidemic or other crisis. Lastly, students pursuing a career in the health can choose to major in Community Health and Preventative Medicine. People with these types of degrees can evaluate and implement health programs for underserved populations. They work to provide adequate healthcare for minorities and residents of other countries.

Those students who are interested in studying law but who cannot afford to pay residence fees should consider obtaining a law degree online. Law degrees online are available at every level - associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate - and are offered by extremely prestigious and accredited educational institutions. Generally, students are also able to complete online degrees in less time than it would take them should they study on-campus as, at home, they are able to work at their own pace. Should they study online, students would also be able to continue working - and thus earn money - while they are studying. Students wishing to pursue a career in law should first obtain an associate degree, which is a general degree aimed at giving them an overview of the legal field. Associate degrees usually take two years to complete and are natural stepping stones up to the next level, which is that of the bachelor’s degree. Examples of associate degrees in law that are presently available online include the Associate of Applied Science in Criminal Justice offered by Kaplan University and the Associate of Science in Paralegal Studies offered by Hodges University. Bachelor’s degrees in law take approximately four years to complete, although distance learning students can complete them in a shorter amount of time. These degrees are slightly more specific than associate degrees in that they will concentrate on only a few areas of one branch of the law and include courses like South University’s Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice: Law Enforcement. Master’s degrees are even more specialized than bachelor’s and can usually be completed in about two years. Each master’s degree will also require a student to complete a capstone project or master’s thesis, and an example of an online degree of this type is Walden University’s Master of Public Administration: Law and Public Policy. A doctorate in law is the highest qualification that can be achieved, and each online doctoral degree will have different requirements and will take a different amount of time to complete. These degrees are highly specialized and an example is Walden’s PhD in Public Policy and Administration: Law and Public Policy.

Yes you can. Many individuals with an existing bachelor's degree take an associate degree to either supplement the bachelor's or choose another career path that the associates can offer. Some courses will be able to be transferred from your bachelor's to the associates. How many depends on the program of study at the bachelor's level, and the one you choose at the associates level.

You might be able to get an associate degree in Radiology online. However that doesn't guarantee that you'd be able to work as a Radiographer. You must also be certified by the state Radiology board. Of course there's a huge difference between being an X-ray technician and being able to use some of the extremely complex instruments used by the most accomplished Radiogrpahers.

The number of credits do not necessarily equate to a degree. It's whether the courses you completed satisfy the degree requirements particular to a specific program of study (major). If you completed the courses at a college or university that offers an associate degree it will be much easier to obtain the degree. It you completed the coursework through various schools it will be more difficult because intuitions have a transfer credit limit. Therefore the institution would require you completed a number of courses in residency. I would be able to give you more information if I knew exactly where you completed your credits. Lastly, if the credits are spread across a number of disciplines, you would want to look at a liberal arts, or exploring the arts and sciences degree where the school will be able to use more of your coursework.

You need a four year college degree in the speciality that you want to teach. Some teachers go to a two year college with an associate degree and can teach certain courses. You must be able to assimulate the subject material in a way to be able to verbalize it in an understandable way to the students. You must want to relate to children and teens. You must be dependable and fair.

An associate degree program is usually about 2 years and 70 credits. A bachelor's degree is about 4 years and takes 120 or so credits. If you went to school full time you might be able to complete it in 2 years.
