Salinas panel to explore ‘hidden’ health care jobs
The Californian - Salinas

Teenage boys, those with a wary eye on an uncertain jobs future, often skip over promising health care fields.

It’s all based on a chronic misunderstanding, said Elaine Hermann, a registered nurse who noticed the trend.

“Male (high school) students hear ‘health care.’ Right away, they assume ‘jobs for women,’ ” Hermann said.

“Or they think only of male doctors. They figure they don’t have the money to become a doctor.”
