NEWTON, NJ- Sussex County Community College is offering a class for Certified Nurse Aides  who are seeking additional employment opportunities within the health care field. A CNA can enroll in a 12-hour class at SCCC this summer to become a Certified Home Health Aide.  This class will be offering the Certified Home Health Aide for Certified Nurse Aide training program on two Saturdays, August 9 and August 16  from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

The “CHHA for CNA” training program is approved by New Jersey Board of Nursing and is taught by a team of nurses who have years of home care experience. Employment for Certified Home Health Aides is projected to increase nationally by 50 percent over the next 10 years.
