Certified Homemaker-Home Health Aid (CHHA) Program
The CHHA program is designed to provide a learning experience where students will be able to successfully obtain the entry-level skills necessary to obtain employment in the healthcare industry. Some typical duties of a homemaker-home health aide include helping the patient take a bath, use the toilet or bedpan, and dress the patient. They also may prepare patient meals, do light laundering, straighten the patient’s room, run errands, and assist with exercise regimens. The 76 hour curriculum mandated by the New Jersey Board of Nursing includes all components necessary (speech, occupational, physical therapy, CPR, dietary skills, etc.) to train participants to provide home care to the ill and elderly. Students enrolled in this course will spend their time in classroom work,
hands-on clinical practice, multimedia, lab skills practice and individualized student centered instruction. The course is designed so that students will meet all requirements necessary to take the New Jersey Board of Nursing approved examination and become a Certified Homemaker-Home Health Aide (CHHHA) upon the successful completion of this course.
