The world may think you are only one person--But to one person, you may be their world.
The Medicare and Medicaid certified agencies that employ home health aides in Maryland are requiring them to complete a certified nursing assistant training program. Home health aides that work for Medicare and Medicaid certified agencies are required to complete the certification training program (minimum 75 hours) and pass a competency evaluation, OR complete a state certification training program that is according to the Federal legislation.
The classes offered below offer a certificate option that will provide students with the knowledge of the social, biological and psychological facet of aging and the aging populations. Upon completing the course work and obtaining the certificate, the students are then eligible to take the Geriatric Nursing Assistant Certificate through the Maryland Board of Nursing and begin working as a HHA or certified nursing assistant. The training may include learning on topics in nutrition, first aid and personal care skill tasks.
Maryland is one of those states that hold the most home health aide job vacancies. With your determination, you will definitely land a job in the state.
