Employers Need Professionals with Validated Skills

Healthcare continues to evolve, and demand will increase for professionals who have validated skills and training.

As the globally recognized high-quality provider of credentialing programs for cardiovascular professionals (nurses, advanced practice providers, allied health professionals, technologists), Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI) administers programs to demonstrate the specialized knowledge and skills necessary for various cardiovascular specialties.

CCI credential holders have completed a rigorous testing process and are required to commit to ongoing professional development through CCI’s renewal process.

Hiring CCI-credentialed professionals will help your organization:

  • Recruit and retain good healthcare practitioners
  • Increase your staff competency level
  • Build a strong, dedicated team committed to high standards of quality and continued professional development
  • Establish career ladder opportunities for staff
