About NHA

Access to a Better Future

Each of us has a reason to care.

Some people call their reason Mom or Dad. Still others may call their reason son or daughter. The fact is every one of us will, at some point, rely on a healthcare worker to care for us and the ones we love.

The simple notion of improving healthcare through greater competency is at the heart of our mission. We work every day to fulfill that mission through education and certification, leading to access to better care, better careers and better efficiency for providers and their patients.

The factors that drove us to start NHA in 1989 are still present today: demands continue to rise and there remains a need for prepared, confident healthcare workers.

Whether you’re a student, educator, employee or employer, NHA is driven to improve the quality of your career and business. By helping prepare the next generation of healthcare workers, we are helping individuals and healthcare businesses make a meaningful, positive impact.
