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.
More and more patients require special care, sometimes around-the-clock and a Certified Patient Care Technician (CPCT) has a diverse range of knowledge and skills vital to that care. Earning your Patient Care Technician credential and passing the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) PCT exam will set you up for success.

These are additional requirements after obtaining employment in the field as a prerequisite to gaining certification as a Certified EKG Technician (CET) or a Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) and are not included in this program.
