Tackling the Challenges Faced by Adult Learners

Going to school is hard. Going back to school is even harder. And going back to school when you’re noticeably older than everyone else in your class? Well, let’s just say that if you’re an adult learner headed back to school, I’m proud of you.

It’s easy to feel like the odd one out as an adult learner in college, but there are some perks too:
Adult learners are more mature. It will be much easier for you to choose between studying for your exam or going out to party than it will be for your 21-year-old classmate.
Adult learners tend to be more focused and driven. More than likely, you’re paying for that education yourself, not mom and dad, and you’ve set clear goals and motivations. Earning that “A” feels even better when you’ve worked for it and paid for it all on your own.
Adult learners have more life experience. You’ve already pulled countless all-nighters when your kids were born, so what’s one more the night before your big exam?
Adult learners know what it’s like to be in the real world. You’ve probably been working for a while and you know what the job market is like – and you know what classes you need to take to reach your career goals.

But if you haven’t seen the inside of a classroom in years, it’s normal to still feel intimidated about going back to school. That’s why Livanta Learning has created a flexible, web-based resource for continuing education in ICD-10 training. Medical coding is a growing field and the perfect career option for an adult learner who has already had some real-life experience in the healthcare industry. If you’re looking for a career boost, Livanta’s ICD-10 medical coding training is an excellent opportunity, and here’s why:
Medical coders saw an 8.4% salary increase in 2014.
It is predicted that medical records and health information technician positions will increase by 22% between 2012 and 2022.
As our population continues to age and regulations become more complex, the demand for medical coding positions will increase as well.

Enrolling in Livanta’s ICD-10 training can enhance your skills, develop your expertise, allow you to keep up with the latest medical coding updates, and provide you with more confidence in your coding skills. And what’s even better – salaries for medical coders are expected to continue to rise! Right now looks better than ever to be a medical coder!
