Administrative medical careers are hot as well, with medical billing and coding specialists able to command premium salaries, along with Health Care Administrators, Physician Assistants, Medical Assistants, and Health Information Specialists.

Our final piece analyzes the impact the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will have on CNA salaries in the short and mid-term future.
