Starting over after a long time off due to health to get into coding or records

Hello all. I have been off work due to health issues for about 6 years now. I'm in my 40's, back in school to get my certificate for medical records technician/professional medical coding specialist. I have read that most of the time to get into the field one needs to take a reception job, or just something to get a foot in the door. Admittedly, I have never had to look hard for jobs in the past and this is my first time needing a resume, cover letter, etc.. So this is all new to me. I have a couple of long breaks over the last 15 years or so that I list on my resume as a caregiver, since I was home with my kids. I have put out countless resumes, tweaking it as I get feedback, for the specific job, and just to make it a little cleaner. I am also looking for an internship that I need to complete my program, but have no bites as of yet. Any advice would be great. Thank you in advance.

How do you best explain a four year gap in employment on your resume or in an interview due to family issues?

No work experience

I'm 16 and I've never had a job before. I don't have a resume either. Why would someone hire me?

For medical assistants who have been out of the medical field for over 5 years and want to come back.

You don’t need to get recertified to apply for a medical assistant position, but make sure you have valid excuse as to why you have not worked in the medical field. Employers will be understanding if a family member was sick or you were furthering your education. The skills you previously attained as a medical assistant are still relevant, so it’s easier for employers to focus on training you for a specific department.

Worried about unemployment.

I am looking for a job since February 2016 and have still have not been successful in landing a job. I am looking for a job in the legal/contracts field. Will this long term gap in my employment history make it difficult for me to get a job ? I am currently keeping busy by reading books related to my field and engaging in volunteering activity in the local aid clinic.
