Value of CCHP More Important Than Ever Before

Posted Oct 2, 2020

In a year beset by the COVID-19 pandemic, correctional health professionals are seeing the importance of the CCHP and specialty credentials to support their understanding of NCCHC standards, improve safety and health and boost the quality of patient care.

Nearly 100 new CCHPs found a way to prepare and get certified in third quarter as test centers reopened and online testing for CCHP became available. Specialty certification was earned by 5 mental health professionals (CCHP-MH), 5 registered nurses (CCHP-RN), 2 physicians (CCHP-P), and 1 advanced correctional health professional (CCHP-A). The CCHP board of trustees acknowledges their dedication during a very challenging time and thanks them for their commitment. 

These certifications took effect October 1. Download lists of these individuals here:
