Empowering Students to a Better

Future Through Certification

Laura Flynn, Tricia Austin

National Healthcareer Association

Your students are the future of healthcare. As an educator, you provide

them with a solid educational foundation to position them for a successful

credential gives them access to hands-on experience, increased postsecondary

attainment opportunities, and can empower them to enter a high-wage,

high-demand profession. Join the National Healthcareer Association (NHA)

as we introduce our suite of industry credentials, tools, and resources that

assist educators and students. Learn best practices from an instructor who has

successfully implemented certifications. Gain insights on how to identify the

best certification for your program, steps to help a student prepare, and how to

create curriculum that aligns with the workforce.
