GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT CERTIFICATIONS

 

The National Board for Home Care and Hospice Certification (NBHHC®) launched the certification examinations to establish, assess and promote gold standards for home care and hospice professionals. The core purpose of the certification process is to foster best practices to ensure optimal level of service excellence is delivered.  

The certification examinations will assess the candidate’s proficiency in management and leadership, specifically for the level and auspice indicated. The credentials denote that a certain level of knowledge, experience, and professional responsibility have been acquired to effectively manage a provider agency.
