Training of Home Health Aides and Nurse Aides: Findings from National Data
June 1, 2012
This study examines the differences in how certified nursing assistants (CNAs) and home health aides (HHAs) perceive training experiences. The authors find that a significantly larger percentage of HHAs felt better prepared to do their jobs as a result of their initial training as compared to CNAs. A majority of HHAs and CNAs participated in continuing education programs after their initial training. Most of them found the additional training to be useful.
