The purpose of this study was to investigate the consistency of career decision making and its relationship with selected achievement and academic variables. The study analyzed data which were obtained from students who took both the American College Testing Assessment and the American College Testing Plan. It included students who chose a health career and, for the most part, were interested in a traditional four year college education. In addition to selected achievement test scores, the study analyzed (a) sureness of career choice; (b) high school course patterns in mathematics and natural science; (c) high school academic achievement; and (d) gender, race and ethnicity, and states which participants represented.
