Certification Center

The American Hospital Association Certification Center (AHA-CC) designs and administers Certification Programs to recognize mastery of well-defined bodies of knowledge within health care management disciplines. Achieving an AHA certification demonstrates to patients, health care organizations, and the public, that the health care professional has met national performance standards specific to their job role.

In addition, the AHA-CC provides contracted services to the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) in support of its Nurse Executive and Nurse Manager Certification Programs.
