In 2003, a group of healthcare professionals, educators, and government representatives convened to create a national curriculum for healthcare leaders. This group, the National Association of Healthcare Leadership Professionals (NAHLP), developed core educational courses that have been adopted by numerous universities across the country. For the past 20 years, NAHLP has been a front-runner in both academic and organizational based healthcare leadership development and quality improvement.
Update: in the fall of 2022, NAHLP was contracted to create a certification related to quality improvement. We are pleased to announce that our Certified Quality Improvement Engineer certification was approved by ICPE and is now available for attainment.
In 2019, NAHLP was commissioned to create national certifications related to two major shortfall areas within the field of healthcare: 1) health facility management, and 2) human resources within healthcare.
As NAHLP set out to create certifications for these shortfall areas, numerous providers and state government entities requested a certification for special care unit administration. Due to the growth of special care units across America, NAHLP rose to the challenge and created the special-care manager certification.
NAHLP developed the four certifications by extracting the core blocks of learning from the accredited bachelors, masters, and PhD programs they have created over the past 20 years. NAHLP’s collegiate programs have been nationally and regionally recognized by the following organizations:
The certifications developed by NAHLP are applicable to those with or without advanced degrees. They are industry proven and in high demand.
NAHLP – creating tomorrow’s healthcare leaders today.
NAHLP's three certification programs are proudly accredited by the International Center for Programmatic Excellence
