Is it time for a change? Why not consider a career in health?

Are you happy in your job? Or do you think about a career change? Are you unsure how to get that meaningful career you desire? Well it could be a role in health and wellness is just what you need!

The health and wellness industry is booming. A quick scan of your Instagram or Facebook feeds and you will see the huge amount of passionate people ditching their corporate jobs to find fulfilment as life coaches, personal trainers, yogis, herbalists, nutritionists and more.

A diverse and fascinating industry, health and wellness is growing on a global scale. We live in a world where people are willing to spend more money then ever on self-improvement and wellness. So much so, it is estimated that the global health and wellness industry is worth USD 4.2 trillion, and it is on the up.

In this flourishing and multi-faceted industry there are many opportunities to develop a prosperous career. Options include nutrition, personal care and beauty, fitness and mindfulness. All of these offer fantastic earning potential and could enable you to work flexible hours and even to become your own boss. But perhaps most importantly, a career in health and wellbeing, could energise your working life and give you that satisfaction that can only come from working with and helping others.

With so many compelling reasons to explore this rewarding work, how do you ditch your current job and make the switch?

At eCampus NZ we think education is absolutely the key. Whether you are committed to putting your all into this expanding industry or you just want to test the waters – eCampus NZ has a bunch of short course options that can give you the skills and confidence to wade right in.

A ‘go to’ option for many will be our popular introductory course an Introduction to Natural Health and Healing. Designed for those wanting to understand a variety of wellness methods including diet, hydrotherapy, positive attitude, relaxation, yoga, chiropractic, natural remedies and more, it provides a good overview for those looking to know more and understand this exciting sector.

For those students looking to explore the nature of matter and the principles of chemistry that are important to human physiology. There are two online course options: Human Anatomy and Physiology and Human Anatomy and Physiology II. These courses go in-depth on how the circulatory and respiratory systems work together to provide human bodies with the oxygen their tissues need, and how they work together with the skin and kidneys to rid the body of wastes. A highly educational course, students will learn how human bodies fight off diseases, and how the digestive system converts food into energy and tissue. Learners will also spend time on the endocrine system, which supplies the hormones needed for survival, and the reproductive system.

Our final course is the eCampus NZ Medical Terminology: A Word Association Approach course which teaches medical terminology from an anatomical approach.
