I'm currently going to community college to finish my pre-req's for nursing. I'm currently working for a Telecommunications company full-time while going to school. I'm so bored with it that I want a change. I was wondering what kind of Medical jobs are out there that do not require a degree. I'm currently taking a Medical Terminology
Course if that would help at all. I'm so fascinated with the Medical field that I would like to start working in some kind of facility but I'm not sure what all I would qualify for if anything.

I think that at a lot of hospitals- with medical terminology
, computer and typing skills, you could probably get a job as a medical secretary....It would be a change of setting and you would get to see alot of the things that go on in a hospital setting. Also...you would probably qualify for a tuition reimbursement program that a lot of hospitals have for their employees. I have a friend who does this type of work and she always has a story to tell about the docs, nurses, and patients.
I'm sure there are other positions within a hospital setting that you could get without a degree...
I'll be checking back for answers, because I'm curious too as I am also working on my prereq's for a nursing program.
