Popular Healthcare Job Titles

Home Health Aide: Home health aides help people who are elderly, ill, or disabled perform everyday activities. They might also give clients medicine or check their vital signs. Most home health aide workers work in clients’ homes, and others work in retirement communities.

Nurse Practitioner: Nurse practitioners diagnose and treat patients. Unlike registered nurses (RNs), they do not have to work under the direct supervision of a physician. NPs must complete a master’s or doctorate program. Here are some of the hard and soft skills used by nurse practitioners.

Occupational Therapist: Occupational therapists (OTs) help disabled, ill, and injured people to perform everyday activities, such as getting dressed or getting around the kitchen. They work in hospitals, schools, nursing homes, and more. Most OTs have either a master’s or a doctorate in occupational therapy, as well as a state license. However, occupational therapist assistants (who assist OTs) need only an associate’s degree, and occupational therapist aides (who also assist OTs) need only a high school diploma.

Physical Therapist: Physical therapists (PTs) help injured or ill people manage their pain and move around. They diagnose physical problems, teach patients exercises, and provide hands-on therapy. Most physical therapists have a doctorate. However, physical therapist assistants (who assist PTs) need only an associate’s degree, and physical therapist aides (who also assist PTs) need only a high school diploma.
