The new emerging health trend (which means new jobs)

I cannot remember how many doctor appointments I have missed because I just couldn’t leave the office at the specific time for a doctor's office visit. However with the new company MinuteClinic, a visitor can be seen by a physician's assistant or a nurse practitioner in appx 15 minutes. MinuteClinic is one of the largest chains of walk-in medical centers cropping up in pharmacies or stores such as Target or Wal-Mart. However, the clinics are only for basic ailments like earaches, seasonal allergies, common colds and pinkeye.

As new MinuteClinics open in new states, new career opportunities are becoming available. Their innovative approach to healthcare allows clients with simple healthcare problems be seen in one to two office visits while opening more opportunities for nurse practitioners and physician assistants. MinuteClinics offer both part-time and full-time positions with benefits. Office hours are reasonable which means a nurse practitioners or physician assistant could continue their education if desired.
