Hi,( Attn med homas from Manhattan) this is good to have NHA Certificate if you live in Fl, NY,NJ,Kansas, but if you want to move to SC or NC you have to take AAMA( American Association Medical Assistant) Certificate otherwise beside privet offices you can't get job in hospitals, big Offices, or urgent care. They will ask AAMA. To get AAMA your school should be accredited.
For Samano from Wisconsin go to NHA site and register with them, than log in and search for study guide, after that you can earn points for your new Certification some points on CE they will give you study guide too.

lyn482 in Bardstown, Kentucky said: The tests are separate. You pay for your CCMA test and your CPT and CET tests all together and it's a few dollars cheaper or you can do the CCMA without the other two or vice/versa. You can't pay them extra to give you the certifications just by taking the CCMA, you have to pass the CPT exam to get certified for it and the CET exam to get certified for it. Not how long this has been the case but I was just certified for CCMA in february and CPT and CET in March.

Hello,

What was all in the CCMA EXAM? I
Will be taking it and Im very nervous. Need help on what to study!

lyn482 in Bardstown, Kentucky said: I am starting to think the same thing. I've seen jobs posted online where it says that AAMA certification preferred and I have been passed over for 2 jobs because they hired someone with experience (even if the person isn't even certified) and the one job that I may be offered starts out at 9.50. Certification may eventually help you get your foot in the door I am hoping but experience is what helps you get more pay and better jobs. I just wish I knew how to get experience first if no one hires you without it!

Check to see if your town has a free clinic, if so maybe you could volunteer and get some experience that way. Frankfort and Lawrenceburg have free medical clinics that could always use a volunteer. and it looks good on your resume

Honestly, I am a terrible test taker. I get nervous and my mind goes blank because I want so much to pass. I sat for the. CPT, EKG and CCMA test all at once. Unfortunately, I only passed the CCMA test. For me I think I should have waited to take the others seperate as for me I think I put too much pressure on myself tackling all 3 at once
So for me I don't think the test was easy, but keep in mind I don't take tests very well. For you it may be different. Good Luck :-)!

Yeah I sympathize with you. I missed Phlebotomy by 3 points and I want to retake the test but irs been sooooo long and I will need to study long & hard to pass but right now time is against me at this. Hopefully Ill be able to soon. But try not to be nervous (easily said then done) but once you relax it will all come back. The great thing is it's multiple choice and you can do the process of illimination. So try to relax. :-)

The test was not hard but while taking it, you will think you failed. It's worded strange and there is a lot on EKG and phlebotomy. Honestly, I studied for 3 days from quizlet.com and passed. Good luck!b

Who said that NHA has to be certified by AMA and amma

AMA is American medical association
They publish coding books

AMMA: I haven't heard of this one ever.

NHA , NCCT , NCCA , AAMA are certification associations , I don't think they have anything to do with AMA or AMMA

Hello,

Some of you mentioned that the NHA informed you were able to also take the certifications for EKG and Phlebotomy. How did were you able to qualify for that? Did you take separate courses? Are they still letting you take those certifications once you take the CCMA certification?

Thank you.

There are a few different options, you can get the study guide + the test (which is what I did) or you can buy each of them separate. I would not recommend even waisting your time on the ATI study guides. I studied until I could spell every Q&A in my sleep and the test wasnt even similar to the ATI study guide.

Any suggestions would be most helpful. Thanks!!

Antonio2 in Leonia, New Jersey said: I'm almost finish with my CMA courses and should be taking the exam in around September, but my school is accredited w/ NHA and not, AAMA. After view some of the comments, it looks like that AAMA association is more recognized in the U.S. and also it pays better in thee job market.

Feel free to comments give advice.

Thx

Actually, That is not true. The NHA has a National recognition since 1989. The schools may tell you that because the NHA is more flexible to receive your Certification.

I am certified as a CCMA through the NHA, sorry to inform you all but no one here in NC at least, takes this certification. everyone is requesting that you be certified either through AMT (RMA) or AAMA (CMA) my guess is it is because it's too easy to reproduce paper pencil test material, as opposed to the RMA and CMA exams which are computer generated and no two test are the same. Paper pencil test, they're all the same test. You can't cheat on a computer examthatis specified for you only.

Who are you refering to no one. If you like refer me to the folks that you are referring to and I will educate them. The exams are not taken in pencil. They are all done via Online and a Certified Proctor location. No way to cheat.

Hi guys,

I am certified as a CCMA, CPT, and CET through the NHA.

A few things: Most employers are looking for AAMA or ABHES certifications (CMA or RMA). CCMA is not widely accepted.

As of right now the NHA is not an accredited program for Medical Assisting. This is not to say that the NHA is not good, or that the CCMA designation is not worthwhile to pursue. I chose to go with the NHA CCMA because I am enrolled in nursing school. Doing two years for CMA made no sense, when I could get my RN in two years. So, I got my CCMA in order to get some clinical experience while in nursing school because the program was shorter. I did encounter some difficulty when looking for jobs because I did not have the AAMA certification, but being enrolled in nursing school helped.

There are rules in each state for the CCMA designation. For example, in Kentucky you cannot work for a nursing home as you have to work under the direct supervision of a physician. It will be up to individual practices and facilities if they hire you as a CCMA or not. Many smaller clinics and doctors offices will still hire you, and you can get some experience. You may not get the starting salary that a CMA or RMA would, but you can get a job. You SHOULD expect it to be a little more difficult if you don't go through an AAMA or ABHES accredited program (Associates Degree for Medical Assistants.) However, you should not assume that you won't get a job as a CCMA. You will, but you may have to accept lower pay or get in somewhere for clinical experience before you can go on to the jobs that you would ideally like. I was turned down for quite a few due to lack of AAMA.

You will NOT become a CPT (Certified Phlebotomy Technician) or CET (Certified EKG Technician) simply by taking the NHA CCMA Exam. You will need to complete a course for each of those credentials in order to take those exams. They are computerized exams with a proctor present. I hope this helps.

med homas in New York, New York said: the study guides are just for you to know of an idea, you will have to refer some reference book in order to take the exam.

I read that no books are allowed for taking the NHA CBCS exam, so how are the coding questions answered if we are not bringing any coding books in?

No one can remember codes, since they are so many, coding exams for example coding professional for physicians and hospitals (CCP-PH)from national certification career association NCCA is an open manual exam, also the american association of professional coders exams are open manual exam, so how can you attempt a coding exam with no coding manuals.

Contact NHA and let them know that the certification is not being accepted. They will straighten that out. The certification is CAAHEP accredited and has to be accepted. Also, direct the employer to the U.S. Dept of Labor website. Go to our page at: myexamsystem.com/About-Us.html and click on the highlighted area: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. No certification is better than another based on how test is given. We use NMLA, NHA and other agencies nationwide with ease. Certification with a good resume almost guarantee employment.
