As per the NHA website, approximately 750,000 healthcare certificates have been conferred.


The National Exam, overseen by the NHA, comprises 100 to 250 questions and offers both computer-based and paper-based formats. Typically scheduled on Fridays from 2:30 to 5:00 p.m., students are allotted adequate time to complete their assessments.
