I'm a full time working mother unmarried with an 8 yr old and a 6mth old and would like to go back to school and better myself. I was first going to decide to be a physical therapist or occupational therapist. Then I saw that you need a masters for one and a bachelor's for the other which is ok and all. Problem is neither can;t be learned online. My community college doesn't offer those majors in those fields, just associates and certficates in other fields. So now I decided to go for medical coding/billing. Are they the same? And well in a way I am concerned about the years I would've been putting in had I went for physical/occ therapy because my current job has recently cut our hours and there's not much hope left in the company I work for and last thing I need is to be unemployed/laid off while trying to pursue my career. I know I can't predict anything but you never know. So does anyone know anyone working in medical billing/coding could share their opinions? Thanks all.
