Nursing Home Administrators
Are you thinking about a career in health administration? If you
are, you should know that there are several key classes to include
in your high school curriculum. Managing a nursing home is very
similar to managing a business. Classes such as accounting,
business management, and computer science will help prepare you for
the business side of this job. Quantitative skills are needed to
excel in this career, so make sure you take as many math classes as
possible. Science and health classes are important to take and will
prepare you for college. High school classes in sociology,
psychology, and social studies can provide you with a background
for understanding a variety of people. And, because you will be
working with so many different people and must give directions,
take English, speech, and foreign language classes to hone your
communication and leadership skills.
