Choosing a Certification Program
Svensen-Cox investigated various allied health certification providers and made the decision to go with NHA for a few key reasons.
“We prefer the NHA certification program because it is more flexible for our staff,” says Svensen-Cox. “Whether they are a new graduate medical assistant or a seasoned staff member, it fits different career stages well, and the NHA CCMA exam is affordable and convenient for us.”
Svensen-Cox was also sufficiently prepared and equipped to administer the NHA certification exam on site for their employees. In addition to the flexible testing options, online certification prep materials, offered on the NHA store, are interactive and easy to access. The use of prep materials also increase the likelihood of certification success on the first try.
Northwest Primary Care is growing, with three new doctors just recently added. Nurses and medical assistants have been hired as well to support the new practitioners.
With people and systems at the core of Northwest Primary Care, certification from NHA supports the mission.
“NHA certification builds confidence for our staff,” said Svensen-Cox. “And helps us keep our promise of delivering great care for every stage in the lives of our patients.”
