The First Step To a Rewarding Home Health Aide Career

Becoming a certified home health aide is not costly and does not require extensive training. If you are looking to get your foot into the health care industry, this may be the right choice for you.  In New York State home health aides must be trained by a licensed training facility. Once certified this choice can lead to a rewarding career in health care. Many HHAs gain experience in facilities and nursing homes  then pursue certifications as a Certified Nursing Assistant, Licensed Practical Nurse or Registered Nurse. So if this is the path you are looking to pursue; look into a certified training agency, but be sure to do your homework.  A list of certified training facilities can be found on the New York State Department of Health’s website at Good Luck!
