If you are in the Hamilton or Fairfield area of Ohio and are interested in becoming a state tested nursing assistant (STNA) you really don't even need to leave the comfort of your own home to receive training. There are online classes that are available for a very low fee. If you want to be trained for free or paid while you are in training, your best bet is to apply at a nursing home where there is always a need for STNA workers and many of them will be more than happy to train you for your exam while you earn a salary there. After you get certification from the state, it is likely your salary will increase.

A STNA is one of the most stable jobs available as health care is one of the fastest growing fields in the nation. To be eligible to be a STNA, a person should have a high school diploma or GED, and be in good enough help where you can help people who are injured or frail and weak due to age. You can expect to learn several things while you are in training such as proper hand washing, basic nursing skills, specialized care, and the promotion of function and health for all residents of the facility where you will work.

A job as an STNA is not for everyone. You may have to do some heavy lifting as some residents may not be able to move effectively on their own. You may have to be witness to a person's basic body functions and be in an environment where disease and death are not uncommon, so it is not for the faint of heart.

Make sure that this is a field you want to get into, and you will enjoy a log and fulfilling career in a stable and growing profession.
