For nearly 10 years, Bri has focused on creating content to address the questions and concerns educators have about teaching classes, preparing students for certifications, and making the most of the AES curriculum system.
The NCHSE NHSC is divided across 11 areas, called “foundation standards”:
Academic Foundation (18%)
Employability Skills (14%)
Legal Responsibilities (12%)
Safety Practices (16%)
Health Maintenance Practices (9%)
Technical Skills (5%)
Information Technology in Healthcare (4%)
Upon passing, students will receive a certificate of proficiency that designates them as having the skills for a career in healthcare. While this certificate isn’t an accredited certification or right-to-work credential, it does serve to inspire students to pursue professional certifications down the line.
Health science teachers who use HealthCenter21 as a core curriculum find it works well to help students pass this exam:
“Since using HealthCenter21 all of my students have passed the NCHSE core test. I believe this is due to this awesome delivery of instruction.”
Marilyn Turvey, Health Science Instructor

If your program wants to provide stackable certification options for students, the CPT exam is a great addition to medical assistant programs.
Teachers use HealthCenter21 to teach basic concepts and reinforce foundational knowledge needed for the NHA CPT exam, with impactful results and responses from their students:
“For my Medical Micro class, HealthCenter21 is a great asset for the Certified Phlebotomy Technician exam. In fact, my students told me that the AES materials for Phlebotomy helped more for passing their certification exam than the certification preparation materials.”
Regina Jackson, Health Science Instructor
DeBakey High School for Health Professions, TX

The NNAAP CNA exam includes both a written assessment and clinical skills demonstration. To become certified, students must pass both portions of the certification program.
The NNAAP written exam focuses on nine areas CNAs must be proficient in:
Activities of Daily Living (14%)
Basic Nursing Skills (39%)
Restorative Skills (8%)
Emotional and Mental Health Needs (11%)
Spiritual and Cultural Needs (2%)
Client Rights (7%)
Legal and Ethical Behavior (3%)
Member of the Healthcare Team (8%)
The skills evaluation portion requires students to perform five procedures from a list of 23 potential skills, including hand washing and measurement.
Implementing the NNAAP CNA exam (or your state’s nurse aide certification) is a great first step for new health science programs.
Health science programs focused on the NNAAP certification often use HealthCenter21 as their core curriculum. Even teachers in other states use HealthCenter21 in their CNA courses to prepare students for certification success:
“HealthCenter21 has been an invaluable tool for students seeking CNA certifications. It has enhanced their learning and retention.”
Dawn Stewart, CNA Instructor
Oakland Schools Technical Campus Southwest, MI
