New Staff Education Courses at Annenberg
For the past 105 years, the Los Angeles Jewish Home has provided seniors in the Greater Los Angeles area with vital programs and services. With a team of nearly 1,500 professionals working to provide the community’s older adults with outstanding, high-quality care, the Jewish Home is one of the largest employers in the San Fernando Valley.
The Home offers its employees a rewarding working environment with generous benefits, compensation, and advancement opportunities. Training programs include instruction from the Home’s Annenberg School of Nursing (ASN) as a home health aide (HHA), certified nursing assistant (CNA), and licensed vocational nurse (LVN). No other senior care provider in Southern California offers so many advancement opportunities.
To continue the tradition of staff enrichment, the Jewish Home has partnered with ASN to provide employees with three complimentary courses – restorative nurse assistant, medication technician, and medication technician recertification.
Restorative Nurse Assistant
Employees seeking a restorative nurse assistant (RNA) certification will learn techniques for helping patients increase strength and mobility levels, resulting in an enhanced quality of life. The two day RNA program is for current CNAs with at least 6 months experience, a high school diploma or GED, and a recommendation from the director of nursing.
Employees seeking a medication technician certification will be trained to prepare and provide patients with non-injectable prescription medications. The two day medication technician program is for current CNAs with at least 6 months experience, a high school diploma or GED, and a recommendation from the director of nursing.
Medication Technician Recertification
Employees seeking a medication technician recertification will receive a refresher course in the preparation and distribution of non-injectable prescription medications. The eight hour medication technician program is for current medication technicians only.
The three courses will be available to staff through the end of August. For more information, please contact Cyndi Meyer at (818) 757-4431 or Cynthia.Meyer@jha.org
*This course is waitlisted for May, June, and August
