Career Portals
Educational Requirements
The college/university I would like to attend to pursue this career would be Texas A&M.
Skills Needed
You have to learn to think the way others do. Some problems might seem trivial to you, but you have to realize that the only important thing is how the problem affects the patient. People react differently to stress and confrontation. If you can put yourself in the patient’s world, really feeling for that person’s suffering, you have a better chance of helping them.
