I do not know what the requirements are for the cert. in home health, but I was certified in gerontology. I did not renew my certification because it was costly and it didn't do anything for me.
For any of the cert. you have to meet the qualifying criteria, sit for the exam and meet continuing qualifications. I was never paid any more nor benefitted in any way other than being able to put RN,c after my name.
