Are you an experienced home care or hospice professional looking for a competitive edge in the market place?

Are you interested in obtaining the necessary skills to successfully lead a home care or hospice organization in Ohio or, even possibly, nationwide?

Then CEHCH is the certification for you!

Ohio CEHCH is a comprehensive certification program designed to elevate the skills and professionalism of home health, palliative and hospice care executives in Ohio by combining national competency standards with Ohio most comprehensive state-specific training.

While the state of Ohio does not require a certification or license to be an executive of a home health, palliative and hospice care organization, several states are considering adopting requirements. Therefore the CEHCH aligned its program with the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Board (NAB) Home & Community Based Services Examination, thereby allowing credentialed individuals to meet national competency standards.

The NAB National Home and Community Based Services Line of Service Examination Program (HCBS) (55 questions) exam encompasses independent living, adult day, home, home health, palliative and hospice care. The purpose of the HCBS examination is to protect the public by ensuring that entry-level home and community based administrators have mastered a specific body of knowledge while demonstrating the skills and abilities essential to competent practice within the profession.

Obtaining the Ohio CEHCH will empower you to excel in the profession you love. And it will enhance your distinction within Ohio's growing and competitive home & community based marketplace.

What is NAB?

About the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB): NAB is the nation's leading authority on licensing, credentialing, and regulating administrators of organizations along the continuum of long term care. The mission of a NAB member state regulatory board or agency includes public protection of the residents and clients of America's skilled nursing facilities, assisted living communities, and home and community based services. As such, NAB strives to support member boards and agencies in carrying out their mission through the development and provision of entry-level competency examinations, standards, shared resources, and tools to assist them in their role of licensure of nursing home, assisted living, and home and community based services administrators. NAB examinations are also used as a component in meeting the eligibility criteria for professional certification programs.
