I am an RN as well as a sales manager. It depends what the company you are interviewing for is needing an RN, Tech, MA, PA etc. Many clinical people apply for medical sales but few get in , if you do get in thank your lucky stars
Nice post, maybe this is what Im looking for

By themselves, they certainly do not constitute any sort of "legit" or recognizable healthcare provider credential, which is what the OP said s/he was looking for.There are many certificate programs available in the health field. I know that Community Colleges have some. Mercy College in NW Ohio has many. Here is the site:

So do you have any other options you can add then?
- 0Jan 20, '11 by netglowYou know what, I think that the Op is looking for something similar to a "Microsoft certification" or other like thing one can easily get with a little effort no matter who you are. Thing is OP, healthcare doesn't work that way. We are a pretty closed group. My RN is my second degree/career, so I speak the truth on this. Take Elkpark as WORD. Simply the way it is.
- 0Jan 20, '11 by elkparkQuote from helpall03As I said earlier, no. bluemartian's recommendation sounds like the most promising lead anyone has. Since I am a healthcare provider and not a salesperson, I have no idea what is available specifically for salespeople but it sounds like bluemartian does. Best wishes.So do you have any other options you can add then?
- 0Jan 25, '11 by CrunchRNNone of those certificate programs are going to give you the credibility you are seeking. Please do not waste your money.
Basically, either get your RN to increase your attractiveness to employers or go on a different direction and get some useful marketing creds. There just are not any fairly short duration courses with accreditation that are going to get you what you want.
