At NHA, we are dedicated to providing access to personal and professional improvement, directly impacting better patient care.
With the help of numerous subject matter experts, we have conducted a nationwide Job Task Analysis (JTA) to ensure we are accurately testing the most current and relevant competencies necessary to ensure proficiency in the patient care technician profession. As a result of this extensive analysis, an updated exam will be released in early spring of 2019.
