Nursing Home Job Overview

Nursing homes usually provide long-term care for the elderly and seriously ill. These busy facilities need a strong staff with a wide range of skills in order to adequately care for the needs of residents. Many nursing homes employ:

  • Doctors, who oversee patient care
  • Nurses, who help patients manage their conditions and communicate with doctors about patients’ needs
  • Nursing assistants, who work closely with the nurses and provide the patients with basic care
  • Other staff members who are responsible for doing things like keeping the facility clean and preparing meals for the patients
  • Some nursing homes have an activities coordinator and receptionists as well as an administrator who oversees the facility

Nursing Home Job Education Requirements

Because so many positions are necessary in a nursing home, there are no specific educational requirements for working in such a facility. However, some of the common jobs within a nursing home do have specific training requirements, such as:

  • Nurses must go through a nurse training program and obtain a license. A nurse may have either an associate’s degree or a bachelor’s degree.
  • Nursing assistants may get the proper training in high school or through another state certified program. On the job training is usually part of such programs.
  • Requirements for administrators vary from facility to facility, but generally those who oversee nursing homes need a high level of education as well as years of relevant experience.

All people who work in a nursing home and interact with the patients must train themselves to be patient, compassionate and attentive to details.

Nursing Home Job Market

As the population ages, nursing homes will become more and more important. Hence, the job prospects of those who desire to work in one are bright. For example, jobs for registered nurses are projected to grow by 19 percent between 2012 and 2022. The growth for nursing assistants is also predicted to be above the average for all occupations.

People with relevant experience who demonstrate the ability to work well in a fast-paced environment have the best prospects for finding employment at a nursing home.

Nursing Home Job Salary Information

The salaries for jobs with nursing homes vary as much as the jobs themselves. A nursing assistant may make roughly $12 an hour, while an administrator could make close to $100,000 in a year.

The nursing home itself makes a big difference in how much the staff members make. A private facility with luxurious amenities is likely to pay more than a nursing home that is operated by a state government.
