Is it possible for me to get a job as a home health aide?

An older friend of mine who recently injured her neck wants me to be her home health aide. It is a job that is through the county. I was wondering if there are certain stipulations for qualifying for the position like taking certain classes. I finished taking classes for a health unit coordinator program and got my degree. I also know that they require a background check and drug testing. My record is clean so the background check does not concern me.

Do you think I'll be able to get this job?
