I choose Nursing, Psychiatric, and Home Health Aides. Home Health Aides are not required to have a high school diploma. They are usually trained in the field by nurses. Some companies prefer to train in a class setting though. Training can last for several days to a few months. One qualification to become a Home Health Aide is being in good health. They usually have to take a state regulated tuberculosis test. They also have to have access to some form of transportation to get to patient’s homes. Having to deal with people everyday, a Home Health Aide needs to be patient, understanding, and be willing to help people. Home Health Care facilities, nursing and residential care facilities, and social assistance agencies are who usually employ a Home Health Aide.
