CAREER ACTION PLAN10Career Action PlanA career action plan is an in depth plan that allows an individual to analyze the skills and education he or she possesses with those necessary to meet his or her career goals. According to the CHS Guidance Department and the Office of Career Planning & Placement (2002), a career action plan is “a process to assist students in making informed decisions regarding education andcareers that includes self-awareness, option awareness, decision-making, planning skills, and portfolio development.” As a new graduate of the University of Phoenix, I will use a career action plan to outline the next steps in my career.

I have experience in patient business services, finance, supply chain, materials management, and

My second professional goal, however, is more specific as I would like to obtain a Clinical Business Manager position preferably in pediatrics. A Clinical Business Manager is responsible for all business transactions within a department. From salary reconciliations, invoice management, and charge capture to budgeting, space surveys, and information systems management. I would prefer this position to be in pediatrics as a personal goal of mine is to workwith children. My final professional goal is to obtain a divisional leadership position. In this role I would be responsible for all activities in every department within a division. For this role I would prefer to stay in pediatrics, however the organizational structure of the health care organization that I currently work for has pediatrics in every division. Therefore not only would
