HOME HEALTH CARE ASSISTANCE

Aspiring professionals in home health care can earn a certificate in the field, which is an add-on to the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) qualification. Courses equip students with practical skills through hands-on experiences.

Home health aides (HHAs) generally work for agencies funded by Medicaid or Medicare. Completion of a formal training program and professional certification are required and the program applicant must hold a CNA credential. Applicants to an HHA program must be in good health, pass a background check and be able to drive. Students learn to take a patient's vital signs, give medication, change dressings and help with exercises. Certificate programs for aspiring home health care professionals typically take no longer than one semester to complete.
