Employers empowering their workforce through certification

Healthcare providers work in an increasingly competitive environment based on patient choice and cost. They need to attract and retain talent to remain ahead of the competition. NHA offers eight separate credentials, making us an ideal partner for practices that desire to help employees improve their skills while potentially advancing their careers.

By employing certified healthcare workers, employers benefit from a workforce with standardized knowledge, expedited workflow, and improved overall patient safety and satisfaction. Employers can entrust their certified employees to perform the administrative and clinical tasks aligned with their credentials, thus allowing doctors and nurses to focus on working at the top of their license and delivering medical care to patients.

Schools preparing their students for professional success

NHA recognizes the highly competitive nature of the academic environment. There is, and will continue to be, stiff competition in attracting qualified student candidates, retaining students through program completion, and placing students in jobs.

NHA is working with schools to deliver analytics on student performance, bringing more predictability to student success. In doing so, schools potentially can enhance their programs through better study tools, better professionals, and better outcomes.
