Healthcare Certification

Healthcare certification programs must maintain the highest quality standards while delivering a simple, secure, and convenient candidate experience. With increasing rates of technological innovations and advancements in evidence-based medicine, it is increasingly important for certifying bodies in healthcare to keep pace and ensure their candidates maintain the necessary competence to practice.

PSI provides healthcare organizations (including nursing, allied health, physician, and dental, among others) with comprehensive certification program services and superior support backed by over 75 years of innovative testing experience.
