Salaries working in healthcare

As you consider a career, money should never be the driving force.  However, if healthcare matches your interests, skills and abilities, data suggests the sector provides better salaries than most occupations.  Salaries vary based on job, skills and credentials possessed.  Average salaries in healthcare in North Carolina range from a Nursing Assistant earning an average of $10.60 an hour to a Respiratory Therapist earning $24.96 an hour.  BOOST offers students New Pathways to Healthcare Careers and an opportunity to earn stackable credentials that can lead to employment or advanced academic programs.
