Question
QUESTION: I just earned my Bachelor's degree in Healthcare administration in the state of Pennsylvania. I need to know if I have to take any further test or certifications before I continue my search for a job in this field. I have turned to friends, family, and even tried to research the question and I still cannot find the answer and I am not sure where to turn. I really hope you are able to point me in the right direction because at this point I feel I went to school for no reason. Thanks in advance! Angela.
