is it easy to get hired at a nursing home?

I am going to school to become a medical assistand as well as a medical coder and I still have a lot of school left but just down the road from me there is a nursing home. I was wondering if anyone could give me advise about getting hired at a nursing home. Also i have heard the turnover rate is high. Anyone have real knowledge of how easy it is to get into the nursing home job market.

I have a teacher who owns a nursing home and she is really being strict on who she allows near her clients because she has to trust them to be alone with the elderly and make sure that they don't get treated badly...Its not he easiest thing...not just anyone can do it

I think there is a great demand for NACs.You have to take a 3 week course which costs you but I think the nursing home where you take the course would hire you and maybe reinburse the cost of the class.There might be a large turnover because it's not an easy job and you don't become a millionair doing it.I don't think...

Just walk in and fill out application. They will hire you on the spot. Most of the time you can start the next day. Don't worry, they will teach you all about poo, diapers, phlegm, etc. It is a very humbling profession. You will never be the same. Have fun.
