Professional certification is a process in which a person proves that he or she has the knowledge, experience, and skills to perform a specific job. The proof comes in the form of a certificate earned by passing an exam that is accredited by an organization or association that monitors and upholds prescribed standards for the particular industry involved.

All Certification’s NHCWA Offer’s

Professional certification shows employers, and clients that you are committed to your profession and are well trained. It gives them confidence in your abilities. Certification makes you more valuable to employers and so you can expect to:

  • Enjoy better employment and advancement opportunities
  • Have a competitive advantage over candidates without certificates
  • Earn higher wages
  • Receive tuition reimbursement for continuing education

NHCWA Certification allows healthcare workers and employers to validate their knowledge and abilities and the mastery of industry-specific skills. Meanwhile, recertification reflects a commitment to ongoing learning and meeting new practice requirements. Organizations that are NHCWA certified can successfully demonstrate to patients, employees and other companies that they use industry-respected best practices.

Standards of certification are distinct from those of licensure. While state licensure provides the legal authority for an individual to practice patient care, private voluntary certification is obtained through individual patient care certifying organizations and reflects achievement of a standard beyond licensure for patient care practice. Possession of a Board certificate does not indicate total qualification for practice privileges, nor does it imply exclusion of other healthcare professionals not certified.
