The Jewish Family Service of Central NJ will offer a four-week training program for certified home health aides from Monday, October 4, to October 29. According to Maria Mullen, RN, JFSCNJ’s director of nursing, “the course will put you on the path to a new career as a certified home health aide, a field that is rapidly growing and in high demand.” 

It will be determined if all lectures will be done remotely. The skills portion will be done onsite in the JFCSNJ state-of-the-art training lab at the JFS Halpern Building, 655 Westfield Ave., in Elizabeth.

Classes will be held Monday to Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with a half-hour lunch break, for four weeks. The training course meets all of the requirements of the NJ Board of Nursing. The fee for the class is $75 for books and materials. 

The training program is funded by the Fred C. Rummel Foundation and Jewish Family Service of Central NJ.

An interview and pre-screening is required for acceptance into the program. For more information, email Karen Winter, RN, at kwinter@jfscentralnj.org, or call her at (908) 352-8375.
