ARC Nurse Assistant & Home Health Aide programs.

In the State of California, there are two types of home health care agencies. The first one is a non-medical model in which there are no orders from a doctor or a licensed nurse supervising the care. This caregiver does not need a certificate or credentials to work for an agency.

The second type is a medical-model. In this case, there is a physician ordering care, therapists providing rehabilitation needs, and licensed nurses overseeing the home health care aide. To work in this type of home health, you must complete an accredited course and obtain a Home Health Aide certificate issued by the State of California. 

ARC offers an accredited Home Health Aide course for students that have completed a Certified Nurse Assistant course, or students that are already a CNA.  Students enrolled in the Home Health Aide course while in the CNA course do not need to repeat the physical exam, TB test, flu shot or fingerprinting. Students that enroll after the CNA course will repeat all health requirements and fingerprinting to qualify for enrollment.


Students must fill out the Dual Enrollment Application and complete all the requirements for the CNA course. The last 8 days of the course are Home Health Aide.
