Nursing Home Jobs

Nursing Home Jobs Overview

Residential and nursing care facilities typically house full-time patients who can no longer tend to their healthcare needs without regular help. These centers offer a mix of social services and medical treatment, including daily medication dosing, meals, living arrangements and acute care as needed. Staff at a nursing home includes a variety of support workers and healthcare professionals, including registered nurses, doctors, aids and assistants. The medical help given by workers in nursing homes can range from maintenance of chronic conditions to end of life care for the terminally ill.

Nursing Home Jobs Education Requirements

Entry-level staff jobs at nursing homes, including non-medical support staff and attendants, need a high school diploma or its equal. Workers in these positions may need on-site training but need no formal licensure. Registered and vocational nurses working in nursing homes need an associate's degree, bachelor's degree or diploma from a certified college or university, along with official licensing. Nursing assistants must also pass a state-approved licensing course but need only a high school diploma or its equal.

Medical doctors on staff need a bachelor's degree, medical doctorate and licensure from the proper state medical boards. Depending on the facility, doctors on staff may also need surgical privileges with a local hospital. Health service managers overseeing nursing home operations typically need a bachelor's degree, though they may also have medical licensure depending on state requirements.

Nursing Home Jobs Market

The jobs market for nurses, in residential facilities and other healthcare centers, remains strong throughout the country. Data collected from the Bureau of Labor Statistics says that jobs for nursing home orderlies and assistants will grow "faster than average," with a 21 percent increase expected through 2022. In fact, as of 2013, nursing assistants accounted for 1.5 million jobs created by this industry.

As the country's population, including the Baby Boomers, continue to age, the need for workers in full-time healthcare facilities will likely increase. Skilled positions, including licensed practical nurses, will be in constant demand.

Nursing Home Jobs Salary Information

Annual wages and hourly pay for employees in nursing homes varies widely by role. Orderlies and nursing assistants earn a mean annual wage of $24,400 as of 2013, states the Bureau of Labor Statistics. By contrast, registered nurses working in these centers earn mean annual wages of $62,010 as of the same year. Of course, wages vary depending on a worker's experience, specialties and the particular facility that employs them.
