The health care industry changes fast. New regulations, big announcements, mergers, best-practices – it is all hard to keep up with. Don’t worry, we have a round up of the top breaking stories in allied healthcare. Get up-to-date on the industry’s most relevant news.
The healthcare field is constantly evolving. Since your NHA certification expires every two years, renewing your certification shows your employer that you're committed to keeping pace with developments in the field and that you can ensure safety and efficiency in the workplace at all times.
More reasons to renew include:
- You want to continue or pursue a career in allied health
- Your employer requires it
- You worked hard to earn your credentials and don't want to lose them
- You want to improve your chances of getting a promotion
- Continued access to exclusive NHA benefits and offers
Ready to get started but unsure of the process or have other questions? We got your back!
- You're renewing if the certification has not already expired.
- You don't need to retake the certification exam as long as you complete the required 10 Continuing Education credits to renew. Courses to earn your CE credits come free with your certification, though CE fees still apply.
- You're reinstating if the certification has expired.
- You don't need to retake the certification exam if your certification expired as long as you're within one year of the expiration date. You can renew but you'll need to complete 15 total CE credits and additional fees will apply.
- And if you hold multiple certifications, you only need 10 total CE credits. If you're reinstating, you only need 15 total credits. Great right? (Learn why allied health workers are earning multiple credentials here.)
