A steady rise in the number of Cerner systems being used by British organisations brings with it increased potential for Cerner careers in the UK.
Knowing this, it’s worth considering any post you take – ongoing or contract – as part of a larger picture. Is a given Cerner job going to advance your career prospects down the line?
Obviously this can’t be the only factor in choosing a role (and you certainly need to keep an eye on what you’ll be paid in any given position) but statistically you’re likely to switch employers, jobs, and job titles several times over the course of your career.
Building a Better Cerner Career
Why not make your next steps part of the decision for your current step? Obviously, you’ll find that you don’t make quite the same step you planned on, but you’re likely to make one that’s very similar. Keeping in mind what experience you’ll need and which skills you’ll be able to demonstrate can really help with that next step.
For systems like Cerner, just as important as your work experience are your training and your certifications. Familiarity with only a few modules will limit your options at every step of your career. It might even create a cap on how high you can rise.
However, by expanding your skillset – and proving it through the right qualifications – you make the next steps in your career much easier.
The best Cerner careers in the UK show great flexibility – working with different modules, understanding how they interact, and able to work on assignments covering any of the different options (or all of them).
