Nursing Assistant Training: Massachusetts law requires that anyone planning to work as a nursing assistant in a long term care facility (formerly called nursing homes) complete this required training and pass a state competency exam. The Red Cross testing fee is included in tuition. All students who successfully pass this course are qualified to take the American Red Cross MA Nurse Aide Competency Evaluation.
Home Health Aide Training: In Massachusetts, anyone planning to work for a state approved Home Health Agency must have their HHA certificate. All students who successfully pass this course will receive their HHA certificate, which never expires. You will always be able to work as a Home Health Aide.
