4. It's a shame I'm not more directly involved in HC
I'm an excellent diagnostician and do have a good understanding of the biological processes, might be more that most conventionally trained HC professionals. Hell, I'd probably work for not more than subsistence wages so long as I could document my skills, help people who really needed them, and mabey move on to bigger and better things a decade down the road.
Unfortunately, my background in electronics and my current job of caring for my 90 y/o mother make it an impossibility at this time.
I hope you have good luck and flexible standards in choosing your prospects. In many cases the traditionally trained candidates may not be the most effective or rewarding candidates.
My very few employment interviews were usually sealed the same day because of my ability to quickly understand what I was dealing with and not just fixing the problem but analyzing why it happened and finding solutions to assure it didn't happen again.
As I said before, I hope you have some flexibility in making your choices. Too often people who have more than the needed skills are discarded because they don't have the proper credentials. That is a very sad thing.

5. Generally the "Minimum Qualifications" are firm, but the preferences are flexible.
A lot of it has to do with licensing and Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) requirements. We can't just hire and train someone to be an RT because they would not qualify for licensure by the national board, for example, and that is a requirement for accreditation.
