“The only thing more expensive than education is ignorance."

Striving for Excellence as a Health Care Educator?
HCEA is currently exploring the feasibility of a national certification for health care educators. To that end, we have begun developing a competency framework. Conversations continue with recognized accrediting organizations to establish this national certification program in the coming year. HCEA will post new information as it becomes available.
