Program Description

This 6 week program (only 2 days a week) is designed to prepare students for employment as entry level Home Health Aide, or Home Maker for Private Patients, in a home health agency, and as independent contractors. Upon successful completion students will earn a Home Health Aide diploma as well as be eligible to challenge the Certified Nursing Assistant Exam administered by Florida Nursing Board.

Home Health Aides help elderly, convalescent, or disabled persons live in their own homes instead of in a health care facility. Under the direction of nursing or medical staff, they provide health-related services, such as assisting with oral medications. Like nursing aides, home health aides may check patients’ pulse rate, temperature, and respiration rate; help with simple prescribed exercises; keep patients’ rooms neat; and help patients to move from bed, bathe, dress and groom.

Students undergo 90 classroom/skills hours, the Certified Nursing Assistant test preparation course and CPR with AED for adult, child and infant. In addition, required continuing education classes are included covering AIDS/HIV Awareness, Alzheimer’s, Assistance with Medications, Domestic Violence, First Aid and Blood Borne Pathogens (OSHA).

With a No Waiting List and No Prerequisite Course requirements, you could be on your way to a career as a HHA in as few as 6 weeks.
