A certified nursing assistant (CNA) and a Home Health Aide (HHA) have similar roles in patient’s lives as they both provide personal care. As a CNA, since you take the state exam, you are verified to know the regulations and procedures that are up to date with Florida Requirements. This allows you to work in Hospitals and other government associations.

It depends on the state, since each state has different requirements. The states that are transferable to and from Florida are Arkansas, Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, and Oklahoma.
