Do you want to become a home health aide or a certified nursing assistant? Look no further! These programs are for you. The Nursing Assistant (NA) / Home Health Aide (HHA) programs, at FHCA Orlando, are designed for those who benefit from healthcare education and training at the same time they enjoy helping others. These programs cover training to help from infants to the elderly, with a wide range of activities aimed at maintaining basic care and attention to patients with different health needs. Generally, the assistant works under the supervision of Registered Nurses (RN) and, sometimes, to the doctors themselves. At the end of the course, you will be able to start working in the field of health.
The United States Department of Labor estimates that nursing assistants and home health aide jobs increase faster than other occupations due to the growth of the elderly population. The expansion in demand for health services should lead to greater job opportunities in other institutions, such as hospitals and clinics.
These two are the professions in medicine that have the greatest daily impact on the patient, making a great difference in their life during the caring stage. In addition, you will feel great personal satisfaction when helping patients with needs while doing your part to create a better community and improving the economic benefits for you and your family.
