Take Your Career Higher as a Certified Home Care and Hospice Executive
The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) is now offering you the chance to turbocharge your career by becoming a Certified Home Care & Hospice Executive.
The Certified Home Care & Hospice Executive (CHCE) certification is available to eligible individuals in home care/hospice leadership positions. This includes executives and managers in provider organizations and those serving in related organizations such as consultants, accreditation and regulatory surveyors, and state home care associations.
Certification is a sign of commitment to your profession as a home care or hospice executive. It communicates pride in your work and dedication to being fully versed in all of the areas of executive management required to effectively run a home care or hospice agency.
“I’ve been a CHCE for 12 years,” says NAHC Executive Vice President Andrea Devoti, who began her career in health care as a nurse and eventually rose to run a large home care agency in Pennsylvania for 18 years. “Being a CHCE commands respect because it tells people you have mastered the fundamentals of home care and hospice. It means you have made a commitment to this industry and your career. I looked at thousands of resumes when I ran a home care agency and applicants with CHCE certification always stood out from the rest.”
