Our Home Health Aide Training Program is a one week, 40 hour program that follows the completion of the NATP.
The CNA Training Program (NATP) is designed to provide the student with the knowledge and skills necessary to perform basic care services for a patient (acute care setting) or resident (long-term care setting). It prepares the student to function in the role of nursing assistant under the supervision of a registered nurse (RN) or licensed practical nurse (LPN). This course is designed to meet the curriculum requirements of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). The basic nursing assistant proficiency examination is the State-approved competency evaluation, with both written and manual skills components. The course requires the student to complete 60 hours of classroom lecture, perform 100 hours in a clinical setting, and successfully demonstrate 21 manual patient/resident care skills. Satisfactory completion of the course provides eligibility to take the CDPH established competency written examination for State certification as a certified nursing assistant.
The Home Health Aide program teaches students how to help the elderly, the disabled, and people in ill health to maintain their quality of life and independence at home, The focus is on safety and universal precaution. Students are taught meal planning, nutrition, feeding and grooming patients. Students also learn how to check and report on vital signs, handle special situations, and perform emergency procedures.
