National Healthcareer Association
National Healthcareer Association (NHA) is one of the nation’s largest allied health certification providers. Since 1989, the NHA has helped thousands of schools across the nation produce better professionals and better program outcomes. Individuals who pass their certification exam will be recognized as Nationally Certified Healthcare professionals and will earn credentials to use with their name, a certification ID card and a certificate. To be eligible to earn an NHA certification, a candidate must possess a high school diploma or the equivalent and be at least 18 years of age.
Join one of the fastest-growing industries in healthcare with a CPT (Certified Phlebotomy Technician) certification and learn the essential skills of collecting blood and non-blood specimens for testing. Expected to grow over 24% in the next 10 years, Certified Phlebotomy Technicians are in high demand and passing the certification exam through the NHA increases your chances of better career opportunities.
*This program has a clinical requirement of 30 venipuncture and 10 capillary sticks on live individuals to sit for their certification exam. MedCerts cannot guarantee they will find a site to complete this clinical requirement, so only students employed in a healthcare facility or those that take full responsibility for meeting their clinical requirements will be admitted to the program.
**PLEASE NOTE: This program is NOT available to students who plan to work in the states of California or Washington. Many states have licensing or certification requirements for those performing the role of a Phlebotomist. This MedCerts program is aligned with and/or prepares candidates for certification or licensure in each state except California and Washington.
Phlebotomy techs collect blood for donation or testing, so the blood can be analyzed in a clinical laboratory. Blood tests are used to diagnose illness, evaluate the effectiveness of medications and determine whether a patient is receiving proper nutrition.
Assist in lab tests by disinfecting equipment, collecting specimens, researching findings, and recording results.

I’m so happy...
“Honestly, I am so grateful that I got a chance to study through Medcerts! I had a wonderful advisor who faithfully checked on me, and gave me great advice. She really paid attention to my needs, and was able to help me through it all. The information I was given was neat, and precise. I feel like everything that I could possibly need to know was in each and every learning material that I received. Now that I have the information that I have, I am pretty sure that I can succeed and become great at what I chose to learn.”
