I sure hope someone can help me with this. I used to be a Home Health Aid over 10 years ago. I am a Certified Nurse Assistant now and have been for the last 10 years. I want to get my Home Health Aid licence back and I have the Re-instatement Packet. There is a company (Right at Home) that is giving Home Health Aid classes to Certified Nurse Assistants if they want Duel Certification. The classes are
only 10 hours and the CNA can be certified as a CHHA.

But since I was a Home Health Aid 10 years ago and my licence has run out, the lady at the NJ state office
said I can not take this class, I have to go for the full course. This makes no sense at all to me.

A CNA that has never been a Home Health Aid can take this class and be a CHHA in 10 hours. Just because my licence has laps over 10 years they want me to take the full course, pay way more money for the full course, and it take about a month for me to get my licence back.

Does anyone know where i can go for help with this?

Start here, this form may be for both Nurse Aid and Home health Aid I could not find one for Home health Aid alone.

But if this is no help, look on this site and send an email to someone that may point you in the right direction.

I hope this helps :)

I understand, My cna lapsed because i had to move several times, now the lady at the state told me I have to take the whole class over and it's only been 1 month. For my CHHA I have to take that class over too, that laps about 9 years ago. So, I understand where your coming from.

I have moved to CNY from Brooklyn, and, of course, my certificate has gotten lost in the move. The agency wgere I worked refuses to either send me a copy, or confirm my certification with perspective employers, as per "company policy"As a result, I'm having problems finding a position as a HHA. Anyone know where I can send, or wright, myself, to get my cert? TIA this is VERY important!

Try going to where you get your certificate renewed.
They should be able to tell you where to go and what
you have to do to get a copy of it.

where would that be? I've never had to go get it renewed. Maybe the agency took care of that? If so, I'm out of luck, as they won't give me the cert.

I found this website, but what it says on it is not very good news for you :(
www.health.state.ny.us/professionals/home_care/curriculum/frequently_asked_questions.htm

Its saying that you will have to take the class again.

Find out first if you have to take the class. In most states you only have to pay to transfer to that state's certificate.

I have a CNA certificate in NJ, and have been working for about 2 years now. I would also like to get my CHHA certification renewed so I can get some private duty work. I had a CHHA certificate about 10 years ago. I was told i have to take a 10-hr course to get it renewed. where can i go to get this done?

I Hope this will help:
If your NJ CHHA license is expired or the New Jersey Board of
Nursing records reveal that your Homemaker-Home Health Aide certification has been expired, then you’ll have to reinstate your expired license.
To return to active status as a Homemaker-Home Health Aide on the New Jersey CHHA registry, you must indeed retake the Home Health Aide exam and submit a Homemaker Home Health Aide Reinstatement Application. And you can always do that through one of New Jersey’s regulated Home Health Aide agencies like E&S Home Care Solutions
If your Homemaker-Home Health Aide certification has been expired for more than five years. For this reason, you must repeat the 76-hour Homemaker-Home Health Aide Training Program or a 16-hour Certified Nurse Assistant conversion course (only if you have a current active New Jersey Certified Nurse Assistant license) and submit documented proof from an agency or school that you successfully completed the mandatory training.
Make sure you complete the entire form and submit any copies of required documents. You may also seek assistance and schedule the exam at one of NJ’s regulated and approved agencies that are authorized to administer the Home Health Aide examination and reinstatement submission in New Jersey.
New Jersey Homemaker Home Health Aide Reinstatement Application Fees excluding the Home Health Aide Agency Service fee:

Expiration Date of 2001 and before: $140.00
Expiration Date of 2003: $120.00
Expiration Date of 2005: $100.00
Expiration Date of 2007: $80.00
Expiration Date of 2009: $50.00

One of the NJ’s regulated and approved agencies administering the Home Health Aide examination and reinstatement submission in New Jersey is:

E&S Home Care Solutions
