Home health aide training

Home health aide training

The Jewish Family Service of Central New Jersey begins a four-week certified home health aide training class on March 1. According to Maria Mullen, RN, who is JFSCNJ’s director of nursing, “the course will put you on the path to a new career as a certified home health aide, a field that is rapidly growing with 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 each day.” The program will take a hybrid approach to remote and in person instruction, with social distancing regulations in place. Lectures will be remote and clinical exercises will take place part time in JFSCNJ’s state-of-the-art training lab at the JFS Halpern Building, 655 Westfield Ave., in Elizabeth.

The course meets all the requirements of the NJ Board of Nursing and is funded by the Fred C. Rummel Foundation. An interview and pre-screening is required before acceptance in the program. For information, email Karen Winter, at kwinter@jfscentralnj.org, or call (908) 352-8375.
