Data analytics, user experience, project management, and minitab, tableau or SQL not required but would be beneficial.


Thanks for your response

Is it a lucrative field and how easy is it to secure a role ?!

I have a master’s in health informatics with data analyst track. I am currently applying and not having a lot of luck. I graduated this past December.

I am not a physician but a pharmacist. I am getting my MHIT in May and have not had much luck. I have been a pharmacist for 10 years and hoping to use this to do a career pivot. I have not caste too wide of a net outside my current employer(yet). I’ll probably broaden my search after graduation. I don’t have any suggestions beyond what has already been said, just words of encouragement. Good luck!

Do you need a degree to pursue this? Or is a professional certification enough?

I currently received an offer for an informatics role. I do not have any experience or a certification in this specialty. However, I’ve been a nurse for 10 years and a nurse manager for 4 years. I’ve worked on projects and process improvements throughout my career with various departments.

I really wouldn't recommend telling a prospective new employer that you quit impulsively. You want to look like someone who think things through and acts decisively but not irrationally and saying you rage quit your job undermines that image.
