Course Description and Details

If you want to work directly with patients in the medical sector but don't have the time or money to study as a nurse, one alternative is to become a licensed home health aide. Many seniors choose to stay in their homes rather than in a nursing facility, and home health aide services allow them, or anybody else with chronic diseases or disabilities, to remain secure and healthy in a comfortable, familiar environment.

Certified home health aides assist with basic chores such as bathing, dressing, basic hygiene, and transfers. You may also be requested to assist with minor housekeeping and errands. In certain places, you can also assist a healthcare practitioner in administering medication and taking vital signs.

There are no substantial curricular changes between in-classroom training and online programs. In both cases, a 76-hour training regimen and an assessment after the course are necessary. The key distinction is how the courses are taken. Classroom training necessitates a student remaining in the classroom for the whole of the 76 hours under the supervision of an instructor, whereas online programs are independent of the classroom. After completing the online section of the 60-hour course, students must spend 16 hours in the classroom.




To work as a certified Home Health Aide in NJ, you must meet the following:

  • Complete a homemaker-home health aide training course that is approved by the Board of Nursing in NJ

  • Complete a competency evaluation by an NJ-licensed home healthcare agency

  • Be at least 18 years of age

  • Possess a valid and current NJ Board of Nursing certification as a Homemaker-Home Health Aide

  • Employed by a home health care service

  • Must be supervised by a professional registered nurse 

  • Keep in mind NJ HHA certifications expire every two years and therefore must be renewed. Once certified as an HHA, you will be listed in the online directory of Certified Homemaker-Home Health Aides. This directory is made available to the general public to perform a license check.
