Look into healthcare admin programs and see what prereq courses that require. In general, you will have to start with general education courses (English 101 at least. psychology, sociology, and college algebra) In addition, you will most likely need an economics class and an intro to accounting.

As far as nursing homes, there is a possibility that your career could lead you there but not in a role that would place you in a ton of hands-on contact with the patients/residents. A great way to get into healthcare administration positions is to start your career in the organization if a different role (e.g. nurse, medical records tech, radiology, lab, etc). That way, you will gain experience as you earn your MHA. You will be in a position to climb the organization's career ladder.

Hope this helps!!
