Civilian Job Suggestions:

Nurse – Nursing requires medical knowledge and interpersonal skills. Nurses are often the first to interact with a patient, and usually perform evaluations and administer basic care. The job requires multiple years in higher learning, so proper preparation is key to success.

Social Worker – Social work comes in two varieties: direct-service and clinical. Direct-service social workers help individuals contend with the challenges of everyday life, whereas clinical social workers work with individuals who have emotional, behavioral, or mental issues. Successful social workers have strong interpersonal skills and the ability to empathize.

Psychiatrist – Psychiatrists are health care professionals who specialize in mental health. Unlike psychologists, psychiatrists are able to prescribe medicine and focus more on the medical aspect of a patients well-being. This field requires an advanced degree, as well as the ability and willingness to work with people, especially in a close and confidential manner.
