So I am currently in an ADN program in Florida. I would like to work sat and sun as either a CNA or home health aid and not only make some money, but strengthen my patient care little. My question is, what do I have to do in the State of Florida to become a CNA/Home health aid? Do I need some sort of certification to just help elderly people at their house bath, organize meds, wound care, vitals, and all that? If so how do I do it?

My advice is to get work in a hospital.  If you are willing to work weekends, you'll get hired in a second.  To understand home health, you need to gain a better understanding of what happens after they get into the hospital.
