It will make a big difference in the amount of money you make, the number of jobs you will be able to choose from during your career, and, frankly the quality of your life.
We’ve been hearing about the “degree or no degree” debate. Studies prove degrees do translate into more money and choices. Many employers even want certification for many jobs people think you can land without some education and training.

Requirements have been imposed on this field by the federal government. If you work in HIT, you’ll be joining professionals in healthcare nationwide using a standardized computer system to document patient health information, including medical history, symptoms, examination and test results, treatments, and other information about healthcare services provided to patients.
