Ohio Certification System (cont.)

< Back Next >

CHWs from the Ohio program.
The Ohio certification program differs in the following ways from the Texas program:

  • Grandfathering ended after first year; only required work as a CHW “at some point”
  • RNs are allowed to delegate some nursing tasks
  • Includes a standard curriculum heavy in medical content
  • Does not include separate credentialing for instructors
  • Sets standards for quality of care by CHWs
