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 been working at a nursing home for a year now. But I'm moving 2 hours away to go to school. I was thinking instead of just quitting to work weekends only as a PRN? I became really attached to these people and the nursing home job pays a little more than my new job anyways. So to work week days at my new job. Is it worth it though or is it possible to work PRN weekends only?
What all do you need to get a nursing home job? I have heard that you need CNA classes, if you apply for the job will that be in the training? Any info I can get about the job itself and the hiring process would be helpful. thanks
I'm looking for a job around my area. I'd like to call and ask if they're hiring before I go in and find out that they're not, but I'm not exactly sure what position I'd be asking about. Like, I've applied at plenty of nursing homes under the job title 'dietary assistant', but some nursing homes have similar jobs under the title of 'home maker'. So I'm wondering... what are all the positions in a nursing home?
I know at restaurants when you apply for a job you ask to speak with the manager. I'm applying at nursing homes as a cna and I don't want to just go to the office and give my application to someone random. Who are the people that do the hiring?
Are there some day cares that hire males or maybe nursing home jobs anything that pays good???
I have a masters in public administration and recently received my nursing home admin license. Just want to know what the job market is like for someone with my credentials who has managed a home health company but not a nursing home.
Im currently out of high school I want a part time job at a nursing home. But where is says "Position apply for" Im not sure what I would write because I dont know what is available for a high school graduate???? Please help its urgent I need a job NOW!
My friend graduated BSN in NJ , he has a hard time finding jobs in acute care nursing, he can only find nursing home jobs, some of his friends can not find any jobs, how and where can they find jobs in nursring?
I'm going to be moving from my parent's house in Florida to South Carolina when I get my LPN license. Is it possible to get an apartment lease before I can get employment and receive my income? I have credit and enough savings for the first two or three months depending on the cost each month. I'm confident I will find a nursing home job by then but is it possible to get a lease? Or do I have to stay at some hotel until my paycheck comes?
Should i go up to the nursing home and ask for an application? or should i try calling HR and asking to speak with a manager about open employment? I have already tried calling and the places quickly explained there were no opening. I am currently applying with a nursing agency, but what are the other options. Advice from current CNA's would be great thanks.
I volunteer at the nursing home, and one of my jobs is talking one-on-one with the residents. But, I'm assigned to the group of people who are like, confused. Dementia, I assumed, though I cannot confirm it.
I'm no doctor or psychologist, and the lady in charge doesn't have much advice to give.
How do you talk to people like these? I really want to bond with these people.
I currently work at a nursing home facility and they are calling you telling you that you were scheduled to come in when you were not, constantly and also reportedly and intentionally mispay you. I was also informed that they fire employees right before the 3 month mark so they dont have to pay for the union
I'm a freshman in college, majoring in nutrition. For my major you have to do a 5th year internship. To be chosen, it looks really good if you've worked and volunteered in things that relate somewhat to nutrition. I'm trying to think outside the box. I've been looking at the local hospital, my states food bank and nursing homes. Also job-wise there are restaurants and grocery stores maybe? But what are some other ideas where I could possibly work with any connection to food? I'd really appreciate any ideas! Thanks!
I am currently a new employee at a job that schedules 8 days of training for new RNs (we train on two separate wings) and I know that I will need more days. The 8 days doesn't seem efficient enough to adequately care for the 27 residents on my afternoon shift. I'd like to ask for more days, but I'd also like to hear if this is standard at most nursing homes. I live in Wisconsin...not that it matters! :o)
For those with experience in the healthcare industry, what steps do I need to take to apply for an nursing home job, also what are the requirements? Do I need to take any classes or do they train on the job?
I like to work as a nurse assistant btw.
I am in the US living in Chicago.
I will be applying for jobs in Nursing Homes as a CNA (just passed exam) & I see that they all require TB test and Physicals. Has anyone had the Nursing Home pay for these?
Im 17 and about to graduate high school and have no work experience at all but my parents want me to get a job and i have social anxiety which holds me back from so many job options. I was thinking about working at a daycare (i'm not nervous with kids) or becoming a certified nursing assistant (CNA) so that i could work in a nursing home with the elderly because i'm not nervous around old people. Does anyone here have social anxiety and work with kids or the elderly? if not, what are your jobs and do you have any ideas on what other jobs i could try, i don't know what else to do.
I am going to school next month to become a CNA. However I really don't want to clean all them nasty things a CNA has to clean in a nursing home. Could I get a job in an assistant living or some where else?
I dont mind helping out people! I am a people person.
I know a few people/students who have jobs in the nursing homes around my way but they have no degree in nursing or don't have any kind of experience. how is this possible? what can i do to obtain a job there?
