Featured Class:

CERTIFIED NURSE AIDE TRANSITIONING TO HHA PROGRAM

BTH-5114-W17 - Certified Nurse Aides (CNAs) employed in residential health care facilities (RHCF, commonly known as nursing homes) provide personal care and health-related services, which are comparable to the activities and tasks performed by Home Health Aides. To obtain Home Health Aide Certification, this class can augment a nurse aide's training with classroom and supervised practical training in those skills not included in the nurse aide training program. Such skills include but are not limited to: assistance with medications; handling the patient's money; maintaining a clean, safe home environment; safety, accident prevention and responses to emergencies in the home; taking of blood pressure; and observing, recording and reporting in the home care setting. This class will assure that the nurse aide is competent in such skills prior to providing additional training and issuing a home health aide certificate. CURRENTLY, CNA’S will be included in the eligibility to take the 28 hour competency course, which will include 10 hours of in-home clinical supervision.
