Catalog Description

Community Health Workers are trained advocates in communities where they are connected by culture, language, or residence. They empower individuals to gain access to health and community resources through education, outreach, home visits, mentoring, and referrals. In Ohio, Community Health Workers are certified by the Ohio Board of Nursing.

Practicum experiences in the community are a major component of the certificate program. Graduates have diverse skills, including interviewing, collecting data, obtaining vital signs, mentoring, providing client advocacy, providing referrals to community resources, promoting basic health, and working with culturally diverse clients and community organizations.
