EATONTOWN, N.J., March 5, 2012 -Regarded as one of the best home health care agencies in the region, Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services (PHHC) continues to demonstrate its commitment to excellence in the industry by offering monthly classes for individuals striving to become state certified home health aides.

The classes follow the guidelines set forth by the New Jersey Board of Nursing. Students who successfully complete these requirements receive State certification. PHHC also offers weekend conversion classes to certified nurses aides who wish to be certified as a home health aide. Students who wish to participate must have an active certification from the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services.

"These courses help those in the medical profession to sharpen their skills and learn from dedicated and knowledgeable professionals," noted Ellen Stone, RN, BSN, certification program coordinator. "People who are interested in joining one of the fastest growing occupations should inquire about appropriate training. Additionally, in many cases, students who complete courses with PHHC may be eligible for employment through the company."

Additional classes are also offered to our home health care nursing staff, which includes a variety of topics such as tracheostomy care, ventilator support, and wound vacuum equipment training. Both initial and renewal CPR certification courses are also offered monthly.

"With industry trends always changing, our continuing education courses are continuously being evaluated and new topics are always added to our offerings," said PHHC President Joel Markel. "Importantly, these classes will help create jobs and bolster the local employment in all of the communities in which Preferred provides services."
