for Certified Nursing Assistants
The world may think you are only one person--But to one person, you may be their world.
Maine Home Health Aides are under the supervision of a nurse. The responsibilities of the HHA in Maine may consist of: providing activities of daily living such as assistance with the client’s care and treatment.
Individuals looking to become a home health aide in Maine, must have accomplished the 180-hour certified nursing assistant Training Program. Enrollees are required to be as a minimum sixteen years of age, and a minimum of a 9th grade level education (a high school diploma or GED is often preferred by home health agencies, but isn’t always a obligation).
Once you have completed your educational obligation, that’s when students can then apply to be listed on the Maine’s State Registry of CNAs, before your certification becomes active. A state criminal background check must be passed before you can be placed on the Maine’s registry. Home Health agencies you may work with are responsible for providing an HHA orientation before you go out into the field.
