    Professional Salesman, seek out HIDA certification course (s) AMSC American Medical Sales Certified, this is the most popular certification course for non clinical people to learn clinical environment within your scope. 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

    Thanks

    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:

    Check out this link for some Health field certificates. http://mercycollege.augusoft.net/ind...category_id=19

    Certificate in Pain Assessment and Management
    Certificate in Complementary and Alternative Medicine
    Certificate in End of Life Care
    Certificate in Gerontology
    Certificate in Growth and Development Through the Lifespan
    Certificate in Legal and Ethical Issues in Nursing
    Certificate in Spirituality, Health, and Healing
    Human Anatomy and Physiology
    Legal Nurse Consulting
    Nutrition for Optimal Health, Wellness, and Sports
    Pharmacy Technician
    Please note, though, that these "certificates" are all "add-ons" for people who are already healthcare professionals, to provide a little extra education in a specific area. 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.

    So do you have any other options you can add then?

    You 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.

    As 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.

    Sorry to have misunderstood your post. Good luck in whatever you choose!

    None 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.
