NCHSE collaboratively defines and advances the framework of health science education.
The mission of NCHSE is to provide leadership and professional development for Health Science Education through collaboration among education, healthcare industry, policy makers and professional organizations.
OUR CORE VALUES
The Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) publishes Techniques, an award-winning magazine, eight times a year, that brings all members news about legislation affecting career and technical education, in-depth features on issues and programs, profiles of educators and other newsmakers, notices of new products, ACTE events and more. In two recent editions, Techniques featured two articles about the National Health Science Assessment, the premier end-of-program assessment offered by the National Consortium for Health Science Education.
Student Success, Step by Step - The National Health Science Assessment measures student mastery of basic skills and knowledge that workers in all aspects of the health industry need to know. This article offers a step-by-step strategy recommended for achieving student success. (September 2013)
