National Healthcareer Association for MA Certification

Thanks for your reply. So you have had no problems with the certification being legit? They offer a home study refreshers course I want to take prior to taking the exam. I will be living here in Michigan until Jan. 2009 and moving to Orlando Forida and don't want to have any problems. I want to work in OB and go back to school for an ultrasound tech, just don't want to waste money I could have used for some pre-req classes.

Thanks again.

I did my schooling through the US career institute online and they are letting me take the NHA CCMA exam without hands on experience however, I called my local hospital and they are giving me an apprenticeship for my hands on which I would check into first and also check with your state laws and guidelines. ☺️

I'm planning to take the NHA CMA does anyone know how many questions? How long is the test? What does the test mainly focus on? Does the study guide from NHA and the online practice test help for the test?

I am a CCMA currently looking for a job in the field. I want to progress in the field, eventually to nursing, but as a single mother cannot leave my day job to goto school. Are there any ways to progress while still working my day job and looking for a CCMA job?

I just took the NHA test for my CCMA and I have been a CNA for 14 years and I got a perfect job in a clinic working with great doctors. I took the test the 1st time I missed it buy one point so I emailed the NHA and I didn't have to wait the 30 days to retake it but I did have to pay the fee again, however yes the questions on the test was not anything I study or will be working with in the clinic. This is what I did on the second test, I focused on the question and took my time and answered them as if I was a patient or higher up supervisor. I passed the test. Maybe this will help you as you take the test and use those 3 hours for that test to not rush. GOOD LUCK

Worked as unregistered MA($18/hr) for 5 years with hate for it the last 2. I always felt I did most of the clinic work and got the least of pay. Quit my job and got my prerequisites for RN. Decided to go LPN to RN route and just finished my LPN last month. Screw the MA life and go get your LPN(12 months), ADN(2 years), or BSN (4 years) because sometimes it’s about being able to feed yourself and your family without the headache of knowing which will be registered when your state board of nursing takes care of all that.

I also took the Nha exam and failed I was so upset because I thought I was so prepared I was lucky enough to get help from my sister who just taken the exam one month ago and forward she forward me her study tools but guess what the medical assistant exam has change starting July 19, 2017 or around there and that complete threw me off. Those question were really hard and unless you actually worked in a clinic then you wouldn't know the answer there no study guide that come close to those question and I've been looking for a instructor that give review around my area but I haven't had luck..my school didn't give us any review which was really mess up we basically on our own..if anyone from NY has recently taken the exam and has study guide or anything that could help me please I'm desperate!!

So I have taken the test in 2011 at school. Passed. Just took it again to reinstate my CCMA. This time I failed badly. To me the study guide from NHA had nothing to do with the exam given by PSI. I have been a MA for 7 yrs. and have never done anything the exam questioned about. Of course the test was different from when I took it back in 2011. Are there real CCMA giving suggestion for the exam. Because a lot of the questions were for a LPN/RN question, from my point of view. Any suggestions for me to pass a second time?

I'm finding that it is very difficult to get into the hospital in my state without having AAMA, or AMT. While I'm certified through NHA I'm seeing that it is not as accepted as the others. Now, I am in the process of switching over, but even then I am told that I would have to go through the complete course all over UGH!!! really what sense does any of that make?

I have been a MA for the ladder part of 2 yrs. The trouble I'm finding is that most places in my state only want AAMA, or AMT I am certified through NHA. While some places accept NHA they are of the lower of the credential. As of now I am looking into switching over. I also find that while the field is in high demand it is very hard to obtain a job within the field. Are any of you finding it as difficult as I am?

I agree! I obtained my CCMA(included my CPT, CET,) about 20 years ago! I have done wonders with my certification. From managing back office Clinical Coordinator, to an ER Tech in a high volume face paced ER For the last 10 years. Oh, when I first obtained my certification, I also worked in the lab at the hospital to become very competent with straight sticks & drawing labs. I can go to their web site anytime for any questions and maintain and keep. all CEU's current. I have also seen on some job postings the employer will only accept applicants from a few schools, and NHA is one of them!! That itself says a lot!

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.

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.

Hi,

I just finished taking the NHA for phlebotomy and passed, took medical terminology, and cultural competency class. I'm just finishing with school to become an Medical Office assistant at Queensborough Community College. So far I need to take the NHA exams for EKG, take a called Introduction in Pharmacology, and at the moment I'm taking H.I.M. (Health Information Management) and ICD-9 and CPT course. I finish in two months and I'm looking for internship while I'm still in the program. I'm making plans on moving back to FL after my training. What I want to know is if while applying for jobs, will they recognize all for what I've been training and will I be successful in finding employment out there?

Thank you!

Hello, everyone I am holding a NHA CCMA Certificate too. When I passed my exam for the first time, I got a letter about having Phlebotomy and ECG Certificate that I had to pay for. I did not have a job and money at first, second I did not know the rules because I came from a different country , shortly afterwards I soon forgot about them , after two years when I decided to get my Phlebotomy and ECG Certificate NHA authority told me to take the exam again even though I have been doing CE online to renew my CCMA. Now I found a job in Phlebotomy but I can't get it without Certificate. Any suggestions? Can anyone tell me what to do?

Hello,
I passed my NHA in 2010 for Clinical Medical Assistant, since then (dont really want to go into detail) but I let my certification lapse completely.
I have to recertify myself and take the exam which I am doing this, depending on when the testing is.... I got offered a new job, (so excited)

Im kinda of scared because I passed the first exam three years ago, Ive been going thru my notes, etc... I have enough confidence but it the exam the same as the first time I took it? I passed with a 92%.
Has anyone ever done this and passed a second time? Will it be easy for me to pass the second time?
Thank you all!!

NHA will allow you to find jobs and one more things the employers have to look at your knowledge eventually not which certification you took so best of luck and dont worry about it just go for whatever has been paid for at the moment, in future think of doing another certification for medical software specialist by National Certification Career Association.

I was hoping someone could help me as I am getting a bit worried.
I took an online training program and will be getting certified through the NHA.
Now I am hearing this isn't a widely accepted certificate.
My exams through the NHA are already paid for from my tuition but I suppose I could repay and get certified through the AAPC but with tests running at $300 I'd like to know if the NHA one will allow me to find a job?


Thank you!
